Credit: NASA/Goddard/Arizona State University  --  NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) experiences 12 &quot;earthrises&quot; every day, however LROC (short for LRO Camera)  is almost always busy imaging the lunar surface so only rarely does an opportunity arise such that LROC can capture a view of Earth. On Feb. 1, 2014, LRO pitched forward while approaching the moon's north pole allowing the LROC Wide Angle Camera to capture Earth rising above Rozhdestvenskiy crater (112 miles, or 180 km, in diameter).
