Thank-you for those images of Earth that span 2 centuries.
Excuse me?

It appears to be 27 years. Check my math.

The 1997 image was last century. Why are you asking me to excuse you? For what?

Oh.

Sorry, I failed to see the significance of the turn of a calendar.

Heh, like 2012. Right?

I would think the term span of centuries would mean like hundreds of years. For most people.

LOL. The sarcasm about climate change failed miserably.
Too funny.

Aren't there any stars?

Yes. There's one on the right... the one shining on Earth and Moon.



Why is the Earth brighter than the moon if the Sun is shining on both, and the camera is closer to the moon?

Please tell me you are kidding.

Yeah. Now what? We've been lied to. Now what? Rebellion?




You never explained the absurd size of North America in that "satellite" picture,

Got the originals handy? You don't believe in satellites?


Originals? Of Earth? Like these two photos are supposed to be? Which one is the real one? Pick please.


It isn't a matter of "believing in" satellites, the burden of proof is on the party making the claim. With non CGI photos.

Well..it depends on how the images are interpreted over that timeframe.

I don't know. Is either? Can you tell me more about each one?

You know, like the original sources? And stuff?

Because the original sources often provide information about the images which some people seem to ignore. And stuff. That information is often useful.

Any images we take can be interpreted over the timeframe.

Good luck, but you are trading blows with one of the most obstinate belief systems of all time. Scientism.

Superstition? Not surprisingly you attribute my lack of gullibility with a belief in religion. Of which I have zero belief in.

My communication across the planet is due to a network of undersea cables, ground based towers, and bouncing signals off of the ionosphere.

I find your lack of basic scientific knowledge, disturbing, to say the least.

Does that include the ARPANET undersea cables?

Interesting!!

So I had to check wether or not my educational equipment is up to par and took the kiddie globe and tried to recreate both photo's..

no go...

So maybe it is the Earth's atmosphere creating a lens effect but when I play around with the lens settings of my picture I can create the same effect so I guess it's the satellite's lens creating this effect.



Are both pictures taken from the same satellite/camera?

(Don't know if I'm asking stupid questions, just trying to help explain)

Peace

This is the view projected by Stellarium with the camera located above Petropavlovskiy crater, identified in the image.



The actual camera is some distance away from that, but it shows what you would expect to see.
