I thought the earth was an oblate, pear-shaped spheroid.
Somebody is lying!!

It looks fake as hell to me.. The earth appears a couple hundred times larger in this picture than it does in that " famous" picture taken from the surface of the moon with a 3/4 earth in the background..

The pic of the earth looks awfully familiar. It's the same one we see over & over in books, movies, articles etc. Notice the cloud swirls. Look up any YT and see this exact same thing. Makes one wonder what's really going on here.

Three letters re the far side of the Moon

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

The far side has been imaged yes, the images are composite UV/VIS. Seeing as you know where to look, can you locate the individual images from the visible wavelength filters? If not, then I must assume the images are UV, which is why a regular camera or video camera will see nothing on the far side.
