RE: Voyager 1 reaches interstellar space
This photo was taken by the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) spacecraft from about one million miles away. The Earth and the Moon are both full as seen from this vantage point, but keep in mind what is seen is the far side of the moon, which never visible from Earth. (The green edge on part of the moon is an artifact from various filters used). The telephoto lense really takes away an sense of depth in the picture.
