Pale Blue Dot. Image of the Earth taken by the Narrow Angle Camera (NAC) on-board the Voyager 1 spacecraft. This image, known as the 'Pale Blue Dot', is part of the first ever 'family portrait' of the solar system taken by Voyager 1 on 14th February 1990, from a distance of around 6 billion kilometres from Earth. It is composed of three images taken through different colour filters - violet, blue and green - and recombined to create the final version seen here. For the image's 30th anniversary it has been updated using modern image-processing software and techniques.
