This time, JAXA released HDTV pictures of the Earth appearing to rise over the Moon's north pole. Click the pics below to see the full sized versions:
In this series of pictures one sees the Earth as setting as the Kaguya satellite went over the Moon's south pole.
To a person on the surface of the moon, the Earth does not rise or set, but stays in the same position in the sky. This is because the rotation of the Moon matches its orbit around the Earth - once every 27 days, 7 hours, and 43 minutes i.e. it rotates on its axis once in the same amount of time that it takes to orbit the Earth which keeps the same side facing us all of the time. The reason that is so is that the moon has an unsymmetrical distribution of mass and Earth's gravitational field holds the more massive hemisphere of the Moon facing the Earth.
So it is only from lunar orbit that one can see a lunar "Earth rise" or "Earth set".
Go to this Kaguya (Selene) webpage to watch a video clip of Earth rise from lunar orbit, and this webpage to watch video of the Earth setting. (You'll have to provide your own music - cue up Also sprach Zarathustra.)
I hope these pictures - as the pictures of Earth from space taken by Bill Anders on Apollo 8 did nearly 29 years ago - awaken a new generation to our true situation on "spaceship Earth". There is no "Plan B", no life boat, no second chance.
Trivia: While Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" may be great music (it is one of very few rock albums I actually enjoy listening to), there is in fact no permanently "dark side of the Moon" any more than there is a dark side of the Earth, only the "back side" of the Moon, never seen from Earth, but which does experience day and night.
