NASA Spacecraft Snaps Haunting Earth View From 380,000 Miles

NASA's Lucy spacecraft is on a mission to Jupiter's ancient Trojan asteroids, but it took time to photograph Earth. 

A black-and-white image from Oct. 15 shows our marble with cloudy space. 380,000 miles away, Lucy took a photo (620,000 kilometers).

NASA said Hadar, Ethiopia, is home to the 3.2 million-year-old human ancestor fossil for which the spacecraft was named.

Lucy's T2CAM took the Earth image during instrument calibration. The camera system will track asteroids for the spacecraft.

Lucy captured a second image of Earth and the moon on Oct. 13 from 890,000 miles away 

Lucy was heading for Earth for the first of three gravity assists when the images were taken.
