On July 16th the EPIC camera on NOAA/DSCOVR captured this image of the moon eclipsing the Earth.  North America is seen to the upper right of the moon.  NASA has released this image and a movie of the lunar transit.  We suggest following this link where you will find the movie as well as a high resolution version of the image, allowing you to zoom in to see some detail.  Take some time to see what's on the side of the moon you can't observe from Earth.
