Earthrise in HD

In November 2007, Japan’s Kaguya spacecraft orbited the moon with a high-def camera onboard. You can see the first HD footage of an “earthrise” and “earthset” by checking out these still images (Earthrise and Earthset). The video above gives you a good look at what an “Earthrise” looks like from outer space.

    Beautiful. VO distracting and entirely unnecessary though. The picture itself says everything that needs to be said.

    Kind of idiotic voice over — but it was done in Japan, so what can you expect. But amazing footage!
