Comprising 358 color sets taken over a period of 24 hours, the movie follows Earth through one complete rotation. The spacecraft was 40,761 miles (65,598 kilometers) above South America at the beginning of the sequence on August 2. A day later, MESSENGER was 270,847 miles (435,885 kilometers) away from Earth, farther than the orbit of our Moon, when it snapped the last image on August 3. The Earth departure sequence is also available in movie format.

Each color set was acquired in three visible-light wavelengths (C, D, and E filters at 480, 560 and 630 nm) to form a "natural" color image. The frames are also available packaged in tar archives for easy download.
