For only the third time in space history, Earth has been photographed from the outer solar system, NASA said Tuesday. NASA released the image of Earth, the moon and part of Saturn taken Friday by the Cassini spacecraft, which has been orbiting the planet for 15 years. The image, captured beneath Saturn's rings, shows Earth as a blue dot, 898 million miles away. A magnified version shows Earth and the moon more clearly. (Image Credit: NASA)
