The Juno Fly By of Earth

In a word, stunning. 

The Juno spacecraft is set to rendezvous with Jupiter July 2016. In the meantime, NASA took the opportunity of the spacecraft's flyby of Earth, to gain a gravitational acceleration boost, to take some low-res, but still stunning video of Earth.

The flyby of Juno occurred on Oct. 9.
