A Chinese satellite has taken this picture of the far side or the dark side of the moon. That blue and white spot in the back is the earth.

We don’t usually get to see the far side of the moon, as the moon rotates in sync with the earth. In January this year, the Chinese landed a lunar rover on the far side of the moon in order to start exploring and understanding it.
