It's called 'Triana'.  Or sometimes GoreSat.

At least by my former boss, who helped build it before it got mothballed.

In honor of him, I refuse to call it by the name without enough vowels

Ah, good old Lagrange Point 1. The views from there are spectacular. But be sure to bring your umbrella.

I like the ones of the far side of the moon, when it happens to line up with the camera.

Impressive that even at this level of photography, they still couldn't avoid having a thumb in front of the lens.

Fun fact!

On the high res versions of that image, you can see the artifacts induced by the combination of the motion of the moon and the separation of the camera filters. There's a chromatic aberration on the trailing edge because the satellite uses three cameras, one each for RGB. Because they don't all trigger at the same instant, the moon moves a little bit between each layer.
