Hi Celestians!! (do you remember me, after a loooong period, from the old Celestia forum?)

I'm talking about this (http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap150807.html), the picture taken from the NASA DSCOVR spacecraft from it's vantage point, situated in the L1 Lagrangian Point of the Sun-Earth system...
In this picture (of july 16th) the Earth is seen from about 1.6 million km with the Moon transiting on it.
Really extraordinary and awesome!!
recently in internet also an animation was published, built apon a sequence of ten images taken by the spacecraft.

as a joke and exercise, I wandered if it were possible to recreate this situation in plane Celestia (without any addon) and after some study, the answer is yes!

I obtained this picture

quite similar to the original, in a really simple manner... just using commands and moving the scene with the mouse!

Celestia is an invaluable tool for these kind of researches! Isn't it?
