The time lapse looks exactly as it should. Here's a simulated view from Celestia at the approximate position of DSCOVR at that time:
h.dropcanvas.com...
The satellite is not directly between the sun and earth, it's actually orbiting the L1 point, which is why you can see the fact that the moon is not quite full from DSCOVR's perspective. The clouds are also a match to the clouds present in the animation, and even the way they move and develop.

Vs this from the time lapse from DSCOVR (cropped and perspective corrected as much as possible):

Yus ain't gonna see much in the way of Earthlings and their constructions from a million miles out telescope or no...but it is still very good.

excuse me but im not talking about the edge of the frame I am talking about the terminatin line on the moon its self. Look at the first and last frames of the gif andyou will see it.

Speaking of termination lines, the last image was taken at 8:45 pm which is exactly what time sunset was that day for California, which means California should not be visable in the last frame because it would be past termination. Yes, I know it is still light for a bit after sunset but not because you haven't passed the termination line but because sunlight is reflected down off the atmosphere. You should not be able to see California but you do.

Sorry for thread drift op, and because the initial topic was I looking clouds, get this, Hurricane Delores was happining that day. That morning at 8:45am it was some 220km from Cabo San Lucas Mexico and traveling northwest at 7 miles an hour yet in the gif it appears to either staying the same place or travel east. I'm sorry but hurricanes don't just keep the same three bands of clouds sticking out like arms for hours at a time.

Now do you see how being crass can sometimes make you look like the dumbass?

There's nothing wrong with the moon's terminator in the video. It's as it's expected to be.

8:45 pm eastern time!

You have never watched the Apollo 11 tape CLEARLY FABRICATING the "Blue Marble" photo which they then passed off as an actual image of the etire Earth? I find that hard to believe, so that likely means you just want to believe.

The same argument goes the other way with skeptics in the same way right here on ATS, all the time. We show you an image of a bubble that cannot be there unless it is underwater, and the reply is you ignore it and just believe what they present. They could say anything and you'd believe it. See, it works both ways.

Except they weren't fabricating anything, which is why the edge of the window momentarily obscured earth at one point. Impossible if they were fabricating with a cutout.

Maybe I'm viewing the perspective wrong?

The brown landmass is NA with California and Mexico...

Where is South America? All I see is a strip of land waaay too narrow to be the continent, and the cloud cover isn't THAT dense I shouldn't be seeing it...

Or is the brown landmass to the right of the weird cloudless area actually South America?

If so, then the distance to Antarctica seems to be much larger than I though it was?

I'll bow to you on the EDT point, i did miss that. and it is very sweet that you stand up and speak for wmd, but to resort to name calling and attempting to be rude to other members is against the T&C here. We were having a civil discussion respectfully to each other.

This is another tactic we have to fight here, attacking members instead of content. Just because an idea is presented doesn't mean I can't question it. I spent a lot of time looking at NOAA images today, along with those you guys presented here. You say it is as should be, I do not agree. That does not make me ignorant or worthy others to decide I'm a dumbass. I thought it was ok to question things here, like how is there a rectangular butterfly in the clouds of a nasa gif... guess not.

Excuse me? Calling him a dumbass is being respectful? I don't think so.

Oh, that's real rich coming from you right after you called him a dumbass! You apparently think that's ok if you do it, but if someone exposes your ignorance and turns it back around on you? Oh no no no, we can't have that. And for your information, it's not just "NASA's gif" that showed that cloud formation, it was right there in the GOES west images as well!

Okay the moon was between the sun and the earth....
what a nice eclipse we saw eh?


and further more, like many said earlier, the clouds are not really convincing because in weather forecasts we see them morphing like wild stuff,.... in the nasa animated gif we see none o dat shhhh...

I think it is a fake animated picture. It is even a shame it is on mainstream news.

I forgot to add that I didn't even mind about the fact I saw none of the approximately 2200 satellites which are orbiting earth these days...

faker than fake

No, it wasn't. The satellite orbits the L1 point, it's not directly between the earth and sun. That is why the moon isn't quite full in the images, it's NOT directly between the earth and sun.

Wrong.
h.dropcanvas.com...
The clouds were moving, and they're a perfect match for the weather satellite images at that time.

I forgot to add that you won't see satellites in short fast exposures of bright daylit objects! Do you see stars in the video? NO! Because it was done using fast exposures! So why would you see satellites? Those require long exposures even from much closer!

Do you see satellites in videos from ISS? Generally no, unless it's close or an iridium flare or unless they're performing long exposures where the stars are visible and a distant satellite happens to have line of sight to the sun, like this streak:

So facts and knowledge = "disinfo agent"?

What a strange bubble you inhabit.

phheeeuw, I'm happy you set the record straight. But I am almost suspecting you have bonds with NASA or even disinfo agents.... you know why? Because you know the truth...
thanks

Or maybe I'm just a knowledgeable amateur astronomer. But hey, when all else fails, just accuse the other side of being part of NASA or a disinfo agent, that always works. So much for going after the ball rather than the player, that's not what really goes on at ATS anymore.

It sure did pass directly over what they are trying to pass off as the reflection of the sun, so yes on the surface of a ball from some point it would have to have eclipsed the sun, it passed between the Earth and the Sun. Focal length and angle of the scope wouldn't matter, if the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun it has to eclipse it at some point. You believe what they tel you... I will continue to believe what my eyes and body are telling me.

They fake every image of the entire Earth that looks like a ball. none of them are a camera to film to public exchange, they are all touched, so how can we trust any of them, the pot is spoiled... just like ufo videos these days, they are all fake because we can't tell the fake from real anymore. Just like a religion all of your science comes down to belief. Do you believe what they tell you or not.

No, it didn't. Just because it passes over the specular reflection on the water does not mean it passed directly between the earth and sun. Do you see a shadow from the moon hit the earth in this simulation of that day?
h.dropcanvas.com...
Yes or no? Answer me.

It didn't pass between the earth and sun. It was off to one side by the time it transited the earth from the satellite's perspective. The satellite is not directly between the earth and sun.

I believe what basic geometry tells me. I constructed this simulation myself.

No, they do not. Apparently you're a flat earther spewing lies and propaganda.

Here's a not-to-scale very simplified dumbed down 2 dimensional figure to show the basics of the geometry at work here.

DSCOVR is orbiting the L1 point between the sun and earth. From DSCOVR's perspective the moon appears to transit the earth while it is mostly full, but the moon is not eclipsing the sun at all. Simple enough?
