Crescent Earth with Moon

NASA/JPL
This picture of a crescent-shaped Earth and Moon was the first ever image taken of the two together. Snapped by Voyager 1 when it was 11.66 million kilometers from Earth,  eastern Asia and the western Pacific Ocean are visible. What are not visible, however, are national borders. From space we see that boundaries vanish and that humanity has no choice but to work together to protect its home.
