Amazing Video of the Moon Orbiting Earth as Seen by NASA’s Passing Juno Spacecraft

NASA’s Juno spacecraft captured this amazing video of the Moon orbiting Earth as it passed by our planet on October 19th, 2013. Using a camera designed to track faint stars, Juno captured the images — which were later assembled into a video — at a distance of about 600,000 miles. As it passed by Earth, the spacecraft accelerated to more than 8,800 mph in order to reach Jupiter by July 4th, 2016.
