ANSWER: Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera
In what is the second time in the year, a NASA camera aboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory satellite captured an amazing view of the moon as it moved in front of the sun lit side of the earth.
  • The images were captured by NASA’s EPIC or Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera, a four megapixel CCD Camera and telescope of the DSCOVR satellite orbiting 1 million miles from earth.
  • EPIC maintains a constant view of the fully illuminated Earth as it rotates, providing scientific observations of ozone, vegetation, cloud height and aerosols in the atmosphere.
  • The EPIC camera is providing a series of Earth images allowing study of daily variations over the entire globe.
