In the last few days Hayabusa-2 did a rehearsal of a landing on asteroid Ryugu. At an altitude of only 20 meters it made this photo. Notice the very clear shadow of the satellite. The spot in the green circle is the reflection of a 10 cm target marker.

Two craters on the Moon have been named after the Apollo 8 mission, in particular, after the famous "Earthrise" photo astronaut Bill Anders took. Anders' eye fell on the Earth, rising behind the Moon and asked his collegues Borman and Lovell quickly for a camera. And so one of the most influentual images of the spaceflight era was born.

Two craters in that photo are now called: "Anders' Earthrise" and "8 Homeward".
