The Galileo spacecraft on its way to Jupiter took this fascinating image on December 16, 1992. The Moon is in the foreground. The Earth-Moon system is unique in the Solar System. The Moon stabilizes the rotation axis of the Earth, preventing it from wandering and thus helping to create stable conditions for life to develop on our planet.
