Not an eclipse, the last solar eclipse was March 20th, DSCOVR was still travelling at that point (launched in Feb, took 100 days to reach L1) it took that photo sometime in July. Even during an eclipse I'm not sure that DSCOVR will see it as a transit of the moon as it's position varies (it actually orbits L1). DSCOVR should see around 2 lunar transits a year.
For folks that don't know, it's taken from DSCOVR, a new satellite at the L1 Lagrange point approx. 1,000,000 from the Earth between the Earth and Sun where it can continuously observe the sunlit side of the Earth.
Bored at work today, did a quick snap together of this kit. It's not bad. I like the silver for the wheels, but it doesn't work as we'll for the headlights. Wish they were chrome. Can't wait for the more detailed kits to show up, I know they're doing the pre-paint hope they do a full-detail normal kit as well. Body is matte, not textured, but just dull. Doesn't have that typical snap kit shine.
Spray the dark grey/black, then silver Sharpie for the spokes and rim. Or, alternatively, spray the silver with a lacquer then spray the dark gray with an enamel and remove the dark gray from the spokes with thinner.
