HDTV... from the Moon!

I'm a sucker for pictures of the earth from space, as you may have guessed from this blog's title image. So I had to point out these awesome pictures of earth setting over the moon taken by Japan's Kaguya spacecraft. Also, last week JAXA released a sample of the first HDTV transmission from the moon, taken by the same spacecraft.

I got the heads-up on both of these press releases from the Bad Astronomy blog, one of the best science blogs out there.
