The blue marble that is Earth looks more fragile than ever in this photograph taken by China's Chang'e 5-T1 spacecraft as it rounded the far side of the moon.
Chang'e 5-T1 is doing a tour of the moon to test heat-shield technology for a more advanced mission planned for 2017. The spacecraft launched on 23 October and is scheduled to touch down in Inner Mongolia on 1 November local time.
This stunning image is reminiscent of the iconic Earthrise photo taken by William Anders as the Apollo 8 mission orbited the moon in 1968. Japan's Kaguya probe paid homage to the image in 2007 by capturing HD video of Earth rising above the lunar horizon during its trip.

A perfect high resolution photo, sent from behind the moon from China's Change'e 5-T1 spacecraft !
