This last week, spacecraft operations continued normally.  On the ground, further analysis of the 80 TAGCAMS images from the January stray light characterization activity discovered that some of NavCam1’s testing images had captured the Earth and Moon system.  The images were taken from over 63 million km away while the spacecraft was moving away from Earth at approximately 8.6 km/second.
