I’m posting this purely out of fascination…..

We have seen a Solar eclipse from Earth many times as the Moon blocks the view of Sun and the diamond ring effect that is caused due to roughness (craters) of the lunar surface. But recently, Japanese lunar orbiter, Kaguya, caught the spectacular Solar eclipse from the Moon’s perspective, while Earth blocked the Sun!

Take a look at the video and pictures. It looks very similar to the Solar eclipses we see from Earth but the idea of seeing our own planet causing the eclipse is what I find fascinating :).
