As many Japanese people know, a spacecraft with two mini-spacecraft, named Kaguya (or known as SELENE) goes close to the Moon. The name is a princess back to moon, based on the Japanese old tale. Recently, a Hi-vision image of the Earth taken by Kaguya has been reported on TV news. This time, New images of the Moon are released by JAXA(Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency).

On Oct 9th, the moon the age of the moon was 26th. Since the moon facing to the Earth colored black by the shade, Kaguya took the photos from the back side of the moon. She is almost reaching her old home.
I'm looking forward the next photography; collaboration shots with Moon and Earth.
