This image, taken by the Venus Monitoring Camera during commissioning of the Venus Express instruments, shows Earth and Moon from 3.5 million kilometres away. The exposure time was set to obtain a signal from the Moon in all four channels simultaneously. For this reason Earth is overexposed.
The image is a composite of four images all showing Earth and the Moon but at different wavelengths: upper left, infrared; lower left, infrared; upper right, visible, and lower right ultraviolet. North is up.
