Yesterday, the Rosetta spacecraft, which was commissioned by ESA to study the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko captured this view of the Earth as part of its third and final flyby of our home planet with its OSIRIS instrument:
I suspect that more images will come as the spacecraft completes its flyby, but it’s always nice to have new images of our home world and this one is not a disappointment.

Australia’s clearly visible at the bottom and you can see India, the Himalayas and Tibet at the top though most of the rest of Asia is shrouded in night or clouds.
