NASA’s Artemis I mission has been under the spotlight lately, and we recently saw Orion’s stunning video of the Earth “setting” behind the moon. On its sixth flight day, the spacecraft took detailed shots of the moon’s surface. NASA shared it with the public so that you can look up close at our home planet’s natural satellite.

Watch: The Earth setting behind the Moon as seen by Artemis 1’s Orion spacecraft
NASA’s Artemis program wants to place astronauts on the lunar surface, and it’s successfully completed its first step of this long journey. The Artemis 1 mission has reached its destination, and we’re already getting some marvelous shots showing us our planet in an entirely new context.
While we normally see the moon rise and set. But in a recent video Artemis 1 sent back to earth, we see our planet as it sets behind the moon – and it’s absolutely magical to watch.
The only photo of Neil Armstrong on the moon could fetch $30,000 on an auction
On 20 July 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first man to set foot on the moon. It was long believed that his reflection in Buzz Aldrin’s helmet was the only photo of him from the entire Apollo 11 mission. However, a rare print showing Armstrong is now on auction, expected to fetch up to $30,000.
NASA release Juno mission’s closest image yet of Jupiter’s moon Europa
No, it’s not the back view of Patrick Stewert’s head. Nor is it a cricket ball that was lost in 1926 and spent the rest of its life hidden under a hedge on the village green. Nope, what you’re looking at instead is actually one of Jupiter’s 80 moons. This is an image of Europa released by NASA and taken by its Juno mission.
Observations from the spacecraft’s pass of the moon provided the first close-up in over two decades of this ocean world, resulting in remarkable imagery and unique science.
Two photographers and over 200,000 photos made this 174-megapixel photo of our Moon
One of the most marvelous things about photography (and there are many) is the collaboration with other artists. You get to meet new people, you inspire each other, and together you make something extraordinary.
So, when two incredible astrophotographers get together, what can you expect? An equally incredible image. Andrew McCarthy and Connor Matherne got together and combined over 200,000 shots to create a single moon photo. The result: a super-detailed 174-megapixel image that lets you zoom all the way in and see all the details you wish.
NASA wants your best Moon shots ahead of the Artemis I mission launch
In only a few days, NASA is launching Artemis I. It will travel 40,000 miles beyond the Moon and back, paving the way to sending humans to lunar orbit on the second flight test, Artemis II. To celebrate and build the hype, NASA wants you to share the best Moon photos that you’ve taken. In fact, you can share anything Moon-related, but to stay in our field, let’s stick with photos and how you can show them off to NASA.

Photographers, get ready to shoot 2022’s last supermoon tomorrow
If you’d like to shoot the last 2022 supermoon, get ready! Tomorrow, on 11 August 2022, we’ll get to see the fourth and final supermoon of 2022, also known as the Sturgeon Moon. And after that, you’ll have to wait another year to get another chance.
However, there’s bad news too. If you were looking forward to this year’s Perseid meteor shower, the moon is going to change your plans.
AI-generated illustrations for “Goodnight Moon” are pure nightmare material
I never perceived Goodnight Moon as creepy. Quite the opposite, actually. However, text-to-image always has some weird ideas, and so does
Joris Bax. He didn’t only use Midjourney’s AI tool to create illustrations for the famous bedtime poem. He also added a super-creepy voice and music to it, turning it into pure, distilled nightmare material. Something like this music video, only even scarier.
This photo shows the moon and five planets of the Solar System lined up in the sky
