OK, Zorgon.....is the test about whether the Japanese Spacecraft, as it orbits, is crossing the terminator, and the shadows don't
No the test is in regards to the two documents... but don't worry about it... I doubt you would see anything useful in them so for you it can be the
Japanese 'plastic moon'
I have not the answer....just trying to help you explain the question.
How can you explain it if you don't even know the question?
We would all like to know. Because, Zorgon has that info at his fingertips....all I do is kill dandelions.....according to Zorgon.
Well I do have the data, but there is a perfectly good thread where Selene/Kayuga has been discussed. But I will take a post to try to help you out
here and let the others see my issues with the [ahem] HD images
Now please try to pay attention... quite frankly your attitude is wearing thin and I don't have the time to play your games..
Orbit... and hence my shadows question...
The blue arrow shows the shot direction... when the spacecraft is in the 3 o'clock position on the diagram the sun would be straight in line and
thus shadows on the moon would be high noon almost none..
When it is at the top moving into the night side the shadows on peaks and craters should be LONG
They are not in the video.. matter of fact there is no change in length from 'noon' to 'night'
THIS is supposed to be high definition... please take the time to compare it with any Lunar Orbiter shot from the 60's available at USGS
Please note the smooth featureless lunar surface.. where are the broken rocks and jagged peaks that Apollo showed us? Hmmm perhaps there is atmosphere
and everything is eroded? Again compare this to LO images and tell me its not CGI or the plastic model from Langly...
And while your at it explain why Japan says they will show no more for TWO YEARS and why they removed the early posted HD videos
Take the Earth's from each screen of the video and overlay them.. NO CHANGE not a puff of cloud... not the slightest rotation of Earth...
And before you make a smart comment that these images are on my website as you did in the other thread trying to insinute that by being there they are
somehow less valid...
These are from JAXA Japan and merely hosted on my site so they don't 'disappear' like the HD video did and it uses MY bandwidth, not theirs..
