Earth from Moon. Computer composite image of a crescent Earth seen from above the Moon. The Moon surface image was taken by the crew of Apollo 13. The Earth and stars are satellite images. The dark side of the Earth is not totally dark as it is bathed in reflected light from the Moon. The African continent can be seen facing the Moon in this view. The Moon is Earth's only natural satellite, and is around 400,000 kilometres away.
