That's no Meteor ... It's the Moon !!



The video of the Moon falling to Earth is real and was filmed in real time but of course it's an illusion , it was filmed as the Moon set behind Mount Teide in the Canary Islands from a distance of 16 kilometers away using a telescopic lens , thanks to the lens we get an idea of what a Lunar apocalypse would look like without actually dying .... which is nice

These people are not in danger. What is coming down from the left is just the Moon, far in the distance.

Luna appears so large here because she is being photographed through a telescopic lens. What is moving is mostly the Earth, whose spin causes the Moon to slowly disappear behind Mount Teide, a volcano in the Canary Islands off the northwest coast of Africa.

The people pictured are 16 kilometers away and many are facing the camera because they are watching the Sun rise behind the photographer. It is not a coincidence that a full moon rises just when the Sun sets because the Sun is always on the opposite side of the sky from a full moon. The featured video was made last week during the full Milk Moon. The video is not time-lapse -- this was really how fast the Moon was setting.

The telephoto lens is responsible for more fake pictures than any other source. Yeah, they can look cool, but they totally distort reality. It's the photographic equivalent of Fake News.

Beats me. Do you understand the point? You see a picture of Seattle with Mt. Rainier looming in the background. Wow! Pretty impressive! Come to Seattle and look around. Where is that mountain? Well, it's about 60 miles distant and if you look carefully on a nice day, you can see it, nowhere near as big as the picture you saw. The picture you saw was a fake. It was distorted to make the mountain appear to be very close when in reality it is very distant. You want to argue about that? Really?

Yes.

False. There was no purpose involved at all. The photographer saw something and took a picture of it using the lens which was on his camera at the time.

There is nothing "fake" about it and you've certainly been here long enough to recognize sarcasm.

Wrong. The photographer saw the mountain in the distance and picked a telephoto lens from his collection to "enhance" the picture and make the mountain look closer and larger than it is in reality. Completely and intentionally fake.

That's not the way I remember it.
How long do you think the spiral lasted?

that's a nice picture! no need for the old airbrush as often seen in romantic fakery...but that's another story.
