Today’s Image of the Day from NASA features a spectacular view of the moon in its first quarter phase positioned at the edge of the Earth’s horizon.

The photograph was captured on April 11, 2019 by an astronaut onboard the International Space Station as it passed 255 miles above the Pacific Ocean just south of Hawaii.
