#photo of the day | a Very rare photo of the back side of the moon on the background of the Earth

In January 2019, a monumental event happened — a Chinese probe "Chang'e-4" successfully got on , made the stunning panoramas and even slightly studied its surface. This mission would not be possible if not for the work of the satellite "Longjiang-2" since the probe had no direct communication with Earth, data transfer is carried out precisely through this satellite. It is noteworthy that in addition to relaying signals, it performs other tasks. For example, does amazing pictures of the moon near the Earth.

One of the best photos have been made recently, 3 Feb. She was transferred to located in the Netherlands, the Dwingeloo radio telescope, which, despite its respectable age, still used by the Chinese space administration CNSA. It is noteworthy that the Chinese management did not publish the photos do the Observatory staff. They have uploaded a photo and edited him so he adopted a more natural look.

Experts have also published a larger version of the picture. On it they indicated the names of twelve well-known craters. Tweet of the Dwingeloo telescope was published without editing in the graphical editor.

This was not the first of its kind — even in 2015, NASA's Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) captured the moment . "Longjiang-2" seems better and more believable. This is a great result for the apparatus, the width of which does not exceed 50 centimeters. His camera was established in Saudi Arabia.
