Chinese spacecraft Chang'e 4 made history when it became the first manmade vessel to land on the far side of the moon earlier this month.

This is the first time that this satellite has captured a view of the Moon and Earth in single shot.

EU rebuffs May, says no-plan Brexiteers deserve 'place in hell'
He said that in light of ongoing uncertainty in the UK, EU leaders have agreed that no-deal preparation must continue and intensify.

China's Longjiang-2 satellite entered the Moon's orbit in June 2018, alongside its sibling satellite Queqiao. "The far side of the moon has many more visible craters than the side of the moon that we can see from Earth", Dijkema wrote in a blog post about the latest image.

NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) recently caught a view of China National Space Administration's Chang'e-4 lander on the lunar surface. Queqiiao satellite played a significant role in the entire landing mission. Longjiang-2 has been a success, although during the Chang'e-4 landing the satellite was silent in order to not interfere with communications between the Earth and the lander. The image, which was captured by the Longjiang-2 satellite that was sent skyward a year ago, even features Earth photobombing scene in the background. The tiny satellite took attractive pictures of the Moon after reaching lunar orbit in June 2018, but in early January 2019, as the CNSA was carefully monitoring the landing of Chang'e-4, it invoked a radio-quiet period to minimise interference, according to CAMRAS, which manages the Dwingeloo Radio telescope in the northeastern Netherlands.

DSLWP-B is not managed by any government space agency, so it is categorised as an "amateur" satellite.

The photo captured by the satellite three days back was downloaded by the Dwingeloo Telescope in the Netherlands.
