On its way to the Moon, Artemis I captures the Earth rising behind the Moon

The Tierra rises from behind Luna in video captured by a camera on one of the wings of the spacecraft’s solar panel Orion from NASA on a mission to lunar orbit.

The video was taken at 1305 UTC on the sixth flight day of the Artemis I mission of 25.5 days, shortly after the powered flyby of departure and six minutes after the spacecraft regained connection with the space agency’s Deep Space Network.

The Orion spacecraft is on its seventh day on the mission this Wednesday, November 23, a test flight around the white satellite paving the way for astronauts to fly on future missions.

It is expected that on November 25 at 21:30 UTC the engine will start for the insertion into the distant retrograde orbit scheduled for the mission. On Saturday, Orion is expected to break the distance record achieved by a spacecraft designed for humans, reaching 400,000 kilometers from Earth.
