It’s believed to be the first time a rocket was photographed in front of the moon.

Over the weekend, an American photographer managed to capture images of a NASA rocket flying past the moon. According to reports, it’s the first time a picture like this has been taken, at least in recent decades. The rocket was carrying supplies to the International Space Station and consisted of 14 storeys. Steve Rice, the photographer, captured the shots just 22 seconds after the rocket lifted off from a distance of about 5.5km. He has shared the images on his Instagram account.
