That's the subsolar point - the part of the Earth directly under the sun.


got it. thx.

should this subsolar point be also visible in other earth images taken from space or are there special conditions required.

though I deal with digital imaging and engineering, I'm very ill-informed in astronomy.
(so please don't mistake my skepticism for ignorance
)


It's a reasonable question


It's usually much more obvious on shots over the ocean, like these two from Apollo 8 (picked purely at random):

Isn't this the side where the secret Moon bases are suppoed to exist - the ones built by the US, or aliens, or both? I'm not seeing them.

Wouldn't think you would see them from that distance. You can't make out many details etc on Earth either....

I can't believe you guys really think this is real. Just take a good look at the so-called earth and ask yourself "Where is all the land?" and "Why does the U.S. look so tiny?". No need to even talk about the moon, without question that is fake. Who does NASA think they are fooling with this crap.

The view is over the Pacific, which is the largest body of water on the planet. How much land should you see?

How big do you think the US should be? Why?

Go get yourself Stellarium, or even Google Earth. You can simulate the view yourself. See my post on the previous page.

Why is it fake? What should it look like? Why should I take your word for it?

It looks like someone set a coaster on a picture of the Earth then photographed it


Very cool, but weird looking

The Earth is some 70% water.


and "Why does the U.S. look so tiny?".


What you see on the map is not to proportion.


Commonly, a map projection is a systematic transformation of the latitudes and longitudes of locations on the surface of a sphere or an ellipsoid into locations on a plane.[1] Map projections are necessary for creating maps. All map projections distort the surface in some fashion. Depending on the purpose of the map, some distortions are acceptable and others are not; therefore, different map projections exist in order to preserve some properties of the sphere-like body at the expense of other properties. There is no limit to the number of possible map projections.

...why, exactly?

You should not be so quick to dismiss things when you are coming from a position of such ignorance.

The U.S. is smaller than most maps show due to biases of the Mercator Projection.

From season 2, episode 16 of The West Wing:

Clouds would take a few days to cross -- for example -- the U.S.

In the timeframe you see in this video, clouds would barely move across California (which is just a tiny sliver of land at this scale).

Thats exactly what I thought when I first saw the picture. It is amazing to look at. The moon looks really small compared to the earth, but i guess that's down to the camera & perspective.

Wonderful image.

Here is 1 hour 15 min and it moves enough to be detected by eye weather.gc.ca...

Also, I kind of wish we could see those Alien bases that are supposed to be there

But they do.

Here's the first 8 frames. A bit rough and ready but you can clearly see the rotation of Hurricane Dolores.



Here's a weather satellite view of Dolores

Stupid question, but if it's fully lit on this far side or 'dark side', why is it not as bright as the side we usually see fully lit?
Similar question:

Q: Why is square B brighter than square A?
A: It's not. We can't tell how bright things are, we look for contrast.

The far side is probably brighter on average than the side we usually see because the large maria on the side we can see are generally darker. Our eyes are very easily fooled by contrast and we can't tell actual color or brightness, though people often give themselves more credit than they deserve.

The whole moon is roughly the color of an aged asphalt parking lot (not the darker color of new asphalt), though it has some brownish and other hues, maybe a little more than a parking lot.

Don't forget the nazis who went there in 1945 and started mining Helium-3. There is even movie about them, Iron Sky.

I don't see nazi base either, it's supposed to be giant swastika.

I have often wondered why in pictures of the full earth from space, that you can not see the northern or southern lights??
