The picture was taken using a narrow-angle camera at 32° above the ecliptic and it was created using blue, green, and violet filters.[12] Narrow-angle cameras, as opposed to wide-angle cameras, are equipped to photograph specific details in an area of interest.[13] The light band over Earth is an artifact of sunlight scattering in the camera's optics, resulting from the small angle between the Earth and the Sun.[6][9] Earth takes up less than a single pixel—NASA says "only 0.12 pixel in size."
