Seven Million Miles From Earth

This is a unique photo taken from Voyager I near the start of its epic exploration of our solar system. It was taken when the craft was only 7 million miles out on September 18th, 1977. No human has ever been in a position to take this photo. Voyager was already farther out than any human has so far ever been. Today (34 years later) Voyager I is still reporting data several times a week and Eleven Billion miles away from Earth as it continues to streak along on its amazing journey.
