How about one more Earth view?

Another pretty interesting view of Earth from way out was released today. This time it's from the Indian spacecraft "Chandrayaan-1" which is currently in orbit around the moon. The image is blurry since the spacecraft's cameras are set to focus on the surface - about 60 miles below. That's like a nearsighted person trying to look at something far away, in this case approximately 250,000 miles away.
