Thank you very much.
I don't see any photos with the Moon's surface in the foreground and the Sun/Earth in the background.

Like the: Apollo 11 "Earthrise" picture.

I can't believe that they were stoopid enough to release this image, which clearly shows the extent of the deception.



You can thank me later, for now, it's important we get this conspiracy rolling, and quickly too Swills.

Cheers



I actually LOL'd for real (this has never happened before). Now I'm in trouble with The Management for skiving on ATS instead working on "that spreadsheet".

I bet you didn't even put of the the new cover sheets on the TPS report.

There was a memo about that; I'll make sure you get a copy of that memo.

The Moon is tidally locked with the Earth, and only shows one face to the Earth, so there would be no Earth-rise or Earth-sets so-to-speak.

If you were on the "center" of the moon (the center as seen from Earth), the Earth would always be high in the sky. The only places you would see the Earth on the Horizon would be closer to the "edges" ("edges", as seen from earth). From the location of Chang'e 3 (about half way between the "center" and the "edge"), the Earth would be about halfway up in the sky -- maybe about 45 degrees or so above the horizon.

The images of the Earth-rise from the Apollo missions that you are probably talking about did not come from the surface of the moon, but were taken from the command module while in orbit. As the Command Module orbited around the Moon, there would be Earth-rises (and Earth-sets) that would be able to be seen from the circling spacecraft. Japan's "Kaguya" spacecraft also took pictures and video of Earth-rises and Earth-sets as it orbited.

By the way, there IS a way to see an Earth-rise (or set) from the surface of the moon. The Moon "librates" or wobbles a little during its 28-day cycle, so if you were on the far side, but near one of the "edges" of the Moon, the libration could cause the Earth to appear to dip above and below the horizon. However, this process takes up to 48 earth hours to happen.

i found this pic on their site , what are the green dots on the right , are they lens flares ?


moon.bao.ac.cn...



Oh my god I love it !
You're right ,there are 3 symmetrical dots
all the same color green, above the Moons' surface.
How come we often see well grouped UFO like data glitches above the surface ?
That specific green would show up pretty well against the Moons grey surface.
It's not me, the computer glitches 'want to believe' .

It would be pretty stupid to point the camera straight at the Sun, as it could damage the sensor. However, there are some photos with strong glare, suggesting the Sun was just out of shot: pcture 1, picture 2. The Sun might have even been in the shot in the second picture.

What's up with the clouds around Hawaii? Other than that, it's one amazing image of how the Moon looks!!

The heat from the Hawaiin volcanoes disperses the clouds? just a thought.

Well, other people have observed the flatness issue: I removed my reference to the flat moon phenomena and attempted to joke about it (fail). Y'see, I do know what's at the edge of the Earth (giant waterfalls) but was curious about the moon edge - sandfalls perhaps? Moon rover wreckage teetering on the lip of the void below?

Just my theories there. Perhaps I'll come up with a thesis based on these observations. Perhaps when Richard Branson launches his Moon1 passenger LEM, I'll know for sure.

Oh, and the terminator is curved because of aliens.

Not entirely impossible, but could also be the mountains themselves interfering with weather systems as they pass over.
