Pic: Stunning NASA photo shows off the dark side of the moon
No, this article has nothing to do with that poorly thought out Transformers movie...
If you're on Instagram (we like to use it to take pictures of our food and ourselves at the gym), it's a good idea to follow the NASA page as they usually put up some pretty breathtaking pictures.
A few weeks ago they posted these super images of Pluto, which may or may not be a planet, depending on which Wikipedia pages you read.
This week they had this really cool image taken of the far side of the moon...

The far side of the moon, illuminated by the sun, is seen as it crosses between our 'EPIC' camera on the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite, and the Earth - one million miles away. This image was captured by NASA's Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC), a four megapixel CCD camera and telescope on the DSCOVR satellite orbiting 1 million miles from Earth. From its position between the sun and Earth, DSCOVR conducts its primary mission of real-time solar wind monitoring for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
