Hayabusa successfully photographed its home Earth and Moon on May 12th last week, by using the CCD sensor on the Star Tracker instrument aboard.
The Earth was seen so brightly that the image contained strong smear init, but the image clearly separates the Moon from the Earth. (Magnitudeof the Earth is -8.3, and that of Moon is -4.6.)
The Earth was seen between Sagittarius and Capricornus.
Hayabusa will continue to voyage back to Earth at the speed of 18thousand kilometer per hour.



Earth was seen between Sagittarius and Capricornus.
