Stunning Earth Image Captured by NASA Spacecraft from 380,000 Miles Away

While traveling to Jupiter's old Trojan asteroids, NASA's Lucy spacecraft took the opportunity to record some moving images of Earth. 

The pictures, which NASA released on Tuesday, serve as a reminder of how isolated our world is.

Our planet's marble is depicted with speckled clouds in a stark black-and-white photograph taken on October 15 against a background of deep space. 

From a distance of 380,000 miles, Lucy took a picture of the scene (620,000 kilometers). A vista of Hadar, Ethiopia, the location of the 3.2 million-year-old 

human progenitor fossil for which the spacecraft was named, can be seen in the upper left of the image, according to a statement from NASA.

The Earth image was captured by Lucy's Terminal Tracking Camera (T2CAM) system during an instrument calibration process.
