1 word "Fake" just joking that is amazing and the reason it looks the way it dose is the filters used and they staked the photos (layer upon layer) any one with a web cam or digital camera can do almost the same with the right software but still it is amazing

The reason it looks so different from eclipse photos we are used to seeing is because of the technique used.

They take many photographs at different exposures in order to capture both the dark and light areas in detail then use software to combine them into one.

Look up HDR photography. If done right it can produce some stunning photos.

Great photo OP - Cheers!

Would someone please explain to me what the "dark side of the Moon" refers to?

I thought there was always a side of the Moon not exposed to any sunlight due to current 'face' of the Moon being gravitationally tied to the Earth, hence "dark side"?

If that is so, then in this photo surely the "dark side of the Moon" is exposed to full sunlight???

It's not "dark side of the moon", it's "far side of the moon". The side that we never get to see. As you can see, the sun does shine there.

Beautiful photo

The dark side of the moon is the side that all ways faces away from the earth
due to a tidal lock

"Tidal locking occurs when the gravitational gradient makes one side of an astronomical body always face another; for example, one side of the Earth's Moon always faces the Earth. A tidally locked body takes just as long to rotate around its own axis as it does to revolve around its partner. This synchronous rotation causes one hemisphere constantly to face the partner body. Usually, only the satellite becomes tidally locked around the larger body, but if the difference in mass between the two bodies and their physical separation is small, both may become tidally locked to the other, as is the case between Pluto and Charon. This effect is employed to stabilize some artificial satellites."

Wow those are amazing pictures. Nice find dude. Can you imagine seeing something like that in real time. I like how the moon distorts the suns rays and makes the sky look all sinewy.

Thank you Hillbilly4rent and Bandit795 for that explanation. Next time I will research on line for 5 minutes before asking silly questions

I wonder how many ATSers now share the same desktop background?

Me for one...


Here is an even higher resolution link to the initial image:

1880x1290

Scalable to most desktop resolutions.

Not as perfect as the one above though. I still don't understand how the moon can be faintly seen.


They stacked 5 images. Two underexposed, 1 correctly exposed, and 2 overexposed most lightly. It's called an HDR image. Google it. People get really beautiful images like this but I think it's kind of cheating.
