Earth (on the left) and the moon (on the right) photographed by NASA’s Juno spacecraft on Aug. 26, 2011, when the spacecraft was about 6 million miles away. The photo was taken by the spacecraft on its journey to Jupiter – it will arrive in August 2016.

Aboard the above-mentioned Juno spacecraft are three Lego passengers: Jupiter, Juno and Galileo, each costing $5,000 to craft out of aluminum.
