I absolutely and completely HATE that "something doesn't seem right to me" is still used as an attempt at a valid argument around here. Unreal. . .

Not able to find your post of why we never see photos of auroras from space
Here is one

It's repugnant there're a handfull of people who still think the earth is flat and NASA is fake, even amidst all of the clear signs it's not fake and the earth is a rotating ellipsoid.

As long as they're a handful I guess it's not a problem. But if a large population thinks s*** like that, we're doomed. If we all below a certain intelligent and educational level, we can't confront the future.


yea, people who think the earth is flat or concave or whatever are definitely an entirely other thread.

myself personally, I'm not questioning whether or not NASA doctors their image (which they do for their own reasons or the other)

what boggles my mind is that we are all over space, thousands of orbiting satellites, a space station, rovers on other planets, landing on comets, yet there are no unequivocal images or videos, of say a take off from start to orbit, or just complete videos showing irrefutable claims. we can prove particles can exist simultaneously now, but where is the absolute where anyone can view our celestial body and its satellite as to dispel 'flat earth-ers' forever. why are there still 'questionable' issues with our earth and not other planets. we have conquered space already. we have hover boards now, but we can't show 4k streams of earth out of the hundreds of means we have orbiting the earth.
why haven't we been back to the moon, would it be good or bad to have an (unmanned)observatory of sorts on the moon where we can have telescopes that wont be plagued by light pollution or atmospheric disturbances ?

my point is, there should be no one thinking the earth is flat or the moon is fake. NASA can stop with the low rez bs.
hubble can look billions of light years away, why not the point it towards the earth when the lunar eclipse was happening a few months ago?

I'm not on the fence about our technological achievements, just what is it with the ambiguous and never consistent shady presentations of our planet and its satellite.

We need to get a team up there to pressure wash the Moon. It looks filthy compared to the Earth.

That's not a real photo. It was taken from this video: svs.gsfc.nasa.gov...

There are plenty of real images and videos of auroras taken from the ISS. Here's just one example:

I'm not trying to be confrontational, but all of your questions have been answered on ATS many, many, MANY times. The Hubble? It has to do with the technical details of optical devices of that nature. That has been discussed in very, very clear and technical terms on many, many threads by people who really, really know what they are doing on both the amateur and professional level. You can either accept the testimony of individuals who are skilled in such things, or you can decide not to. There isn't anything anyone can do about that if you choose to not believe people just because they know about things you do not. Going back to the Moon? Again I would ask: For what, exactly? So that you are personally convinced that the pics you are seeing are real? Seriously? Do you know how expensive it would be to put a telescope on the Moon. . . JUST TO LOOK AT EARTH?! That really would be a HUGE waste of time and money.

yea. I think I'm asking for a bit much I guess.

I do see your point though.
I'm not in the space field, but in engineering, I just thought we would be over saturated with cool videos, documentaries, stock footage for the public to view etc.
the observatory on the moon is not a bad idea. it wouldn't be to look at earth, it would be just like the ones we have here,; imagine no increment weather, no ozone, EM field, no distortions (the only concern would be space debris or meteors, considering our landing sites are still intact up there, I don't see that as a problem).

Yeah, I can see where it would be pretty cool no doubt. I honestly used to be right there with you as to the "Why can't Hubble look at -this- or -that-" until the guys around here who do amateur astronomy all the time laid down the knowledge on optics.

Not only that, but you can confirm that what they say is consistent with known facts and known science.

Someone who simply says "it doesn't look right to me; therefore it is fake" is not really a claim that could checked to be consistent with known facts, mainly because they are not presenting a factual argument to begin with.

The far side has been image before if you know were to look.

Why is there never a shadow of the moon falling on the surface of the Earth?

I may be wrong but I assume there would be one every time there is a new moon in the sky, as depicted in the OP image, and not just on the occasion of lunar eclipse..

No, the only time the moon's shadow falls on the Earth is during a solar eclipse. The shadow falls either above or below the Earth the times there is a new moon but no eclipse.

A couple of factors go into this.

First of all, the Earth and moon are relatively far from each other, as shown below. Therefore, for the Moon to cast a shadow on the Earth (a solar eclipse) or for the Earth to cast a shadow on the Moon (a lunar eclipse), the Earth and Moon would have to be lined up "just right".



If the orbit of the Earth around the Sun and the orbit of the moon around the Earth were both on the exact same plane -- say on the Sun's ecliptic plane -- then we would have both a solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse every month about two weeks apart from each other.

However, the earth and Moon are usually not "lined up just right". The Moon is not on the same plane as the earth. Its orbit is tilted about 5 degrees relative to the Earth's orbit around the Sun, so that perfect alignment that can create an eclipse is relatively rare.

More information:

Why is a new moon not the same as a solar eclipse?

Why Don't we have a Lunar Eclipse Every Month?

The video i posted on page 7 of this thread explains all about the shadow.
