Earth, Moon and the Milky Way

This is an old picture showing the Earth, Moon and the Milky Way. Some social media accounts keep posting it as real.

It’s a photoshop job made from at least three separate images: 1) Earth 2) Moon and 3) Milky Way.

It is based on the following picture taken from the International Space Station (ISS). Source: NASA.

The Setting of the Sun Over the Pacific Ocean and a Towering Thundercloud, July 21, 2003 As Seen From the International Space Station (Expedition 7); Image Science and Analysis Laboratory, NASA-Johnson Space Center.
