Earth Rise and Earth Set

These images were taken from the Japanese space capsule Selene in 2007.  It may be eight minutes without any sound, but sit back and watch things from a different perspective.  If you aren't glad you did, we will put your money back in the bowl.

The EarthRise image Wide Shot was taken from near the North Pole, and the Arabian Peninsula and Indian Ocean can be observed on the Earth.

The EarthSet image Tele Shot was taken from near the South Pole, and we can see the Australian Continent (center left) and the Asian Continent (lower right) on the Earth.
