The Parker Solar Probe launched on August 12 aboard a United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket from Space Launch Complex 37 at Florida's Kennedy Space Center, part of the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The inner telescope produced the left-hand image, while the outer telescope produced the image on the right. In this case, it's from the very bright Earthshine.

The images also show objects such as Pleiades, Betelgeuse and Bellatrix, which appear elongated because of reflections on the edge of the detector, according to the USA space agency.

The probe will travel almost 90 million miles, passing within Mercury's orbit to skim through the outer layers of the sun's atmosphere. The heat and radiation it must face on its journey to within 3.8 million miles of the sun's surface will be brutal. "Some high-energy solar particles accelerate to almost half the speed of light, and we don't know why".
