I say this article earlier but couldn't post the link and video from work so saved it until now. It's odd seeing the Moon fly-by :p

From the New Scientist website:

"What would Earth look like to alien astronomers? If they had access to telescopes far more powerful than our own, it might look a lot like what the Deep Impact spacecraft recently saw from its vantage point 50 million kilometres away.

Over the course of one Earth day in May, the spacecraft snapped images every 15 minutes to produce a movie of the Moon gliding in front of our home planet, whose swirling clouds and continents rotated in and out of view."
