On July 5th, the moon passed between NASA climate observatory and the earth for the second time in a year. Images were snapped over a period of about four hours by NASA’s EPIC camera aboard DSCOVR. This image is from the far side of the moon, which is never seen from Earth, passing by. It’s amazing that this image almost doesn’t look real!

If you are an English teacher or a materials writer, how might you use this image in the ELT classroom?
