If the moon was the same distance from earth as the ISS.. fascinating video clip

Some light would get reflected as it moves into and out of the edge. I would think twilight and dawn would be very bright. After further review, seems the middle of the night would be mundane.

Would probably be able to see the US flag if it was there ..or not


I doubt it, unless it was a really large flag.

On the other hand, If we lived on the moon and it was that close to earth, I'll bet we could see Russia from our house!

People would have to be keenly aware of when the moon is passing, as it does shut off the sun very quickly. Traffic accidents, people tripping over curbs and into each other, baseball players ready to catch a popup, etc. People would be very conscious of when the moon is passing overhead, and where the sun is in relationship to its movement.

I'm not going to give my opinion on what would be taking place if the moon was in fact that close,...
But what I will say is...
With the moon in its current position I find myself often looking in amazement. I can only imagine how absolutely consumed I would be should if it so was very close!
Again this is assuming the planet wasn't in a state of chaos and destruction.

Great Post OP
SnF for stimulating my imagination..

Imagine the night of a full moon.
If the moon was that close, you would never be able to watch a full moon as it would be in the shadow of earth every time


The moon wouldn't actually be black all night. It would go through all it's phases rather quickly but when it is being eclipsed it would actually be orange. Reflected light from the earth

Ooooooooooohhhhhhh
You arsehole. You almost gave me a heart attack holy crap. I'm agoraphobic, and stuff like that give me panic attacks. I almost dropped a deuce at 1:01 and this picture doesn't help at all. Don't even think I can quote it


I love space, but christ all these solar eclipse photos are making my heart race

The moon would be orange at those moments? You are thinking! How long would it be orange for? Maybe you should consider contacting the maker of the video, talking that out with him, and then he could upload a new one with the orange moon. It's a classic vid now, and that would make it better!

Yup and you say billions of years, or is it less than that even.

But more so is the Sun, at is current size and rate of losing mass, the Sun even less than a billion years ago would have been so large as to destroy the life, or ability for life to evolve, for those who belief in the Evolution myth.
These facts among several other facts, tell us that the earth and universe is not billions of years old and Evolution is a myth. They will never admit to any of this because the alternative is God created everything, and they will never admit to God. They being the wealthy powerful socialist in charge of most governments, education systems, large corporations, and media.

I don't think that would be accurate. Something tells me we'd all be fish people and would be seeing it through water. With a moon that close we would have to reconsider high tide.

I would never get tired of looking at the moon ever.
Freaking Epic.
thanks for sharing the video.

Wow, that speed is crazy. Sleeping with all those gravitational changes during the day and night wouldn't be helpful for insomniacs


Friction would make this place burn (if it only could have a stable orbit for a while)
That would be funny movie for agoraphobics.

The moon isn't transparent, it's reflecting our atmosphere. Clouds would already be well below the moon, considering most clouds are only 2-12km from the Earth's surface. It should probably be darker than the video showed, but as far as it appearing sky coloured... that's because it's reflecting the sky

If only we could look up and see the sky of an Elder Scrolls game.

Glad you all like it,
isnt it fascinating that billions of years ago it actually WAS this close


It was ? And just how do you or anyone else intend to prove something that highly unlikely could happen..

It matters not what physics calculations used, the only way it was ever that close would be because someone parked it there...

I think if the moon came THAT close to the earth....why.....I could pull out my gun and finally yell "SHOOT THE MOOOOON!" and mean it! How cool would that be, in between all the dying and stuff, shooting the moon with your gun and seeing little puffs of moon dust. I mean the dying part would suck...but....shoot the moon?
C'mon, you know that sounds cool

Stunning video clip of the type of moon rises you would get if it was this close (it actually was this close billions of years ago)


Sorry to say but the universe didn't even exist millions, let alone billions of years ago.

The moon moves about an inch and a half farther away from the earth every year due to this tidal interaction. Thus, the moon would have been closer to the earth in the past.

But If the moon was ever that close to earth, the ocean tides would come thousands of mile into land.

Six thousand years ago, the moon would have been only been about 800 feet (250 m) closer to the earth, which is much more realistic.

So the moon is not a problem over the biblical time scale of 6,000 years, but if the earth and moon were over 4,000,000,000 years old (as big-bang supporters teach), then we would have big problems. This is because the moon would have been so close that it would actually have been touching the earth less than 1.5 billion years ago.

Both evolution and the big bang are just theorys, so you should think twice before teaching them as fact. Not everyone is so easily fooled by the unscientific models certain scientists come up with that hold to a secular worldview.

nice. you'd be a lot lighter when the moon passes overhead and football and snooker would be all out of kilter because of gravitational effects...pole vaulting under a heavy moon...fun!

If you think about it. There would be no full moon at night since the night time side of earth would always obscure the light from the sun if the moon were that close. In actuality you would see a dark void where the stars should be. Unless of course your a Texas preacher and think the moon produces its own light.
