Japan's Kaguya spacecraft orbited the Moon from 2007 to 2009. It created a detailed topographical map of the surface and captured stunning views from a high-definition camera. Image processor Seán Doran used those views to create this 4K video of Earth rising and setting on the lunar horizon. Credit: JAXA / NHK Kaguya Orbiter archive / Seán Doran
