Earthrise Over Plaskett Crater
The above is a view from Clementine of the full Earth over the north pole of the Moon. The crater with a central peak in the foreground is Plaskett (820N, 1740E; 110 kilometers in diameter). On Earth, Africa is clearly visible and nearly cloud free.
This photo was taken by NASA's Clementine spacecraft in 1997.
