Here is the first-ever photo of the Earth and moon in a single frame. Voyager 1 took the photo on September 18, 1977, when it was 7.25 million miles (11.66 million kilometers) from Earth. Image Number: P-19891 via NASA/JPL

37 years ago today.

Voyager to Earth: “Hello World!” or more likely “Goodbye World!”

Voyager is still sending us postcards from the edge though.
