Seeing as we had a thread for Japan's "Kaguya" lunar orbiting spacecraft, I have taken the liberty in creating this thread, dedicated to any and all of the pictures that will come from China's "Chang'e 1" lunar orbiting spacecraft.

I was just on the China.org.cn site which was linked. It said that Chang'e 1 will enter lunar orbit on Monday.
I am in the same time zone(around about) Beijing that will be tomorrow. Hopefully they will release pictures of the real Lunar Surface tomorrow or the day after that.

I read (somewhere) that pictures will first be released around the end of this month. I have no idea why it would take so long, but that is what I read. If I recall correctly, the first image from "Kaguya" was released around the time when it first entered the moon's orbit. Although the quality might not have been the best, it still was nice having a picture almost right away. I have read (on ATS), though, that the better pictures will be released in the future. So, yes, I wonder why it will take so long for the release of better pictures (or even live streams, as some here have wanted). No wonder, based on the prolonged time it takes for pictures to be released, ATSers claim conspiracy

Chang’e-1 journey “successful”...
Official Site...
Mission Objectives...

Thanks to anyone who can find some images of the moon from "chang'e 1." I don't think any have been released yet.

Maybe China doesn't have DSL like Pine Gap does
Seriously, this will be interesting to keep track of. The more countries that launch such craft capable of providing imagery, the better, for many reasons.

Until two collide.

Then I'll retract that comment.

China’s Moon Orbiter Ready for Science Duty...


Chinese space officials are ready to flip Chang’e-1’s scientific instrument switch to the on position. The spacecraft has undergone a series of shakeouts since swinging into polar circular orbit around the Moon on November 7.

On Monday, the probe begins its year-long campaign of studying the Moon with a suite of devices, including a camera that is expected to relay its first image of the lunar landscape late this month. A recent report has indicated that first pictures are to be taken November 26.

...

The orbiter is one element of a CNSA plan that calls for landing a rover on the Moon in 2012, followed five years later by a hunter/gatherer rover involved in returning to Earth select lunar samples.


So, yes, the first images will be taken on November sixth. Who knows when they will be released, though (later this month?). It seems that China has fallen in love with the moon. Way to go China!

Just thought I'd bump this thread with a link to the first image from China's probe. Hopefully more to come soon.

The picture was pieced together by 19 images, each covering a width of 60 kilometers on the moon's surface.


Uh oh, you know what that means. Let the hunt for the absurdly improbable begin!

Great my edits still are not working, yes I see you have mentioned that in your original post sorry, it just gets a bit tedious reading the same things in different threads.

I can't say that I have
. Maybe you can circle it or something
. This is why I think I am going to love this thread. I can't wait to see what anomalies, if any, we can find. Good luck all!

I think that he's talking about the triangle on the far side of the Moon:

www.cmf.nrl.navy.mil...
photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov...

It also can be found on clementine 1.5 image browser
www.cmf.nrl.navy.mil...

insert these coordinates ...
Latitude = -35 (not 35)
Longitude = 208
Select 1 pixel = 1 kilometer
Select 768x768
Click on "Ude lat/long" button
...done.

In the version 2.0 of Clementine Image browser it's no longer visible.
www.nrl.navy.mil...



A possible explanation is a bad processing of the images due to missing data, but i have no clue what really happened: it's a puzzling case to say the least.
ArMap made a research and provided a very good explanation in a thread started by Mikesingh, if i'm correct ...

OH GOOD GRIEF

Not another China Moon Thread


LOL the last time it started up here it got bumped to BTS We need a few good anomalies to keep it here.... It sure would be nice to only have to watch ONR thread on this topic and ONE thread on the Japanese one

Sheesh....

Okay so what's this triangle I here about? And that image is a composite of 19 images and still that's as big as we can see it?

Looks like a propaganda shot to me...




So where is the proof that they didn't just scan an old NASA image?
Are we gonna just take their word for it that they really are up there?
Anyone have a signal from either ship?

There that ought to satisfy ITF for the moment...

But seriously I saw comments on youtube with the "earthrise" video and they are saying what 'awesome footage'

Oh well gimme a wake up call when we see that 'awesome footage'
