New Delhi: NASA`s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has released pictures of 21st version of an amazing `Earthrise` as seen from the Moon.

In the new picture released, the Earth rises spectacularly as a tiny blue marble rising above the surface of the moon. The picture was captured on February 1 with LRO spacecraft`s wide-angle camera.
LRO experiences 12 "earthrises" every day.
The image has been captured recalling the first `Earthrise` photo that was taken by Apollo astronauts in 1968.
