new pic of earth from the LRO;

"It is one of the most stunning images of our planet ever created.

Nasa's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) recently captured the unique view of Earth from the spacecraft's vantage point in orbit around the moon.

It reveals Earth seeming to rise over the craters of the lunar horizon."

so we have a new full-globe image of earth taken from space. looks cool. - "The image was composed from a series of images".

a nice pic.

Better studio used for this one.
More money, bigger hangers, etc...

If you crop the Apollo photo, you can make the Earth look bigger in relationship to the moon.

Why?

Couldn't get a single decent pic?

You do know the earth is flat, right?

Awesome pic. We are fortunate to live on that ball of dirt and water.

I would imagine it's a longer focal length for the lens used.

Besides its photoshop'ed to the max, you know like they do with naked models, what with that broadband connection with the Moon damn it, I was expecting some livestream from the orbiters?

Two different moonrise photos:




Both were taken from Earth.
Is this proof that we have two different moons....
or the moon grows and shrinks?
