From beyond Neptune
Also known as “The Pale Blue Dot”, this image was the first ever portrait of the solar system. Voyager 1 took a total of 60 frames to create a mosaic of the solar system from a record distance of about 4 billion miles (6 billion kilometers) away on February 14, 1990. Earth’s tiny blue dot, barely the size of a pixel, can be seen in the center of one of the light rays, which was caused by taking the image so close to the Sun.
Voyager 1 was on its way out of the solar system after completing its mission of studying the outer solar system when NASA, at the request of Carl Sagan, commanded it to turn its cameras around and take one last picture of Earth and the vast solar system.
