Solar System family portrait taken by Voyager 1 in 1990.
The spacecraft was more than 4 billion miles from Earth, and got a total of 60 frames for a mosaic of the solar system which shows six of the planets. Mercury is too close to the sun to be seen. Mars was not detectable by the Voyager cameras due to scattered sunlight in the optics, and Pluto was not included in the mosaic because of its small size and distance from the sun.
