Time-lapse images of the Moon


NASA has released images of the Moon taken from its Deep Impact spacecraft - some 31 million miles from Earth.

A camera on the probe was turned back towards Earth and in a time lapse sequence, captured the moon passing in front on 29 May.

The video shows a graphic, in the corner, highlighting the position of the earth at the time of the image.
