Datebook: September 18 - Earth & Moon Photographed Together 35 Years Ago

Sep 18, 2012

In the history of mankind, we've looked up at the Moon from Earth, but on this day in 1977, Voyager 1 took a picture of both Earth and Moon together for the first time. This was the view from 7.25 million miles away. And if you look closely, you can see my house.
