GSGKT (1140125) writes "The iconic "Earthrise" photo taken during Apollo 8 mission has been hailed as "the most influential environmental photograph ever taken". Japanese lunar explorer, Kaguya (a moon princess in Japanese folklore), has entered lunar orbit on Oct 19. It has been sending back pictures/movies of the moon taking with its high-resolution camera before that. Movies of earthrise and earthset taken by the Kaguya are now available. This is the first of such a movie since NASA's 1969 Appolo 11 mission, and the first taken using HD camera, according to Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's press release."
