will see if they pick up the stars from the moon as well....



Why would you expect the cameras to pick up stars if the exposure is set for viewing the surface?

Is it because being "in space" somehow magically changes the laws of optics?


What...you think exposure can't be adjusted on the fly?

Sometimes on a clear day, it's possible to see some stars so why not on the moon as well? Even on the ISS with the brightness of the Earth and Sun, it's possible to see stars as well.
I think only time will tell as not everything we are being told by NASA is the truth as we all know...

I know China is in to censorship and all, but will they censor Moon pix too?

I hope not.

Moon landing hoax is what he's referring to.

Thanks. Been a long time since humans have seen those kind of new pictures.

Actually yes. It's called using the right tool for the right job.

You can always help to crowdfund a lunar telescope.

Do you know what a filter is?

Wonder if their rover goes to one of the sites America landed on the moon, would be interesting if they did....


China will find the US Flag on the moon and replace it with its Chinese Flag...just wait and see....now the war for conquering the moon will begin.

I wish they landed near Zeeman Crater.

Lots of interesting things to see there. Just ask Clementine...

They did? Where? www.nasa.gov...

But that particular image colouration is probably due to bad imaging or transmission. Lunar mare are mostly dark grey with a slight reddish or bluish hue, depending on mineral composition.

Seeing if they pick up the stars was one of the first things that popped into my head as well. Considering no one has apparently landed a craft like this on the moon since the 70's, and since those original missions are surrounded in conspiracy theories, many of which revolve around the apparent lack of stars in the background sky, then it would be very interesting to see images from a 3rd party like China to see if they corroborate what has been captured in those early missions.



Actually you can try this experiment for yourself.

Go outside on a cloudless night and use some kind of very bright light to illuminate some grey rocks.
Strong flashlight, camera flash, bright spotlight, holding the rock close in front of car headlights...etc... to illuminate the rocks with the same intensity as the sun would during the day.

Then, after taking correctly exposed images of those rocks, can you also see stars in the background sky?

I think not.


To the "I wonder if they pick up stars"-crew, please listen to alfa1. You will never pick up a star with that exposer time, no matter where you are in the universe.

Grab your camera and try it out yourself before denying the US was on the moon because of missing stars.

Do you absolutely HAVE to turn on the sarcasm all of the time? Do us a favour and give it a rest eh?

On the subject of filters, i doubt this cam had filters as it's just a monitoring / surveillance camera, a fairly low res cam for seeing what's going on with the craft. It's not mission specific or for anything other than checking the the immediate area of the lander iow.

The moon is not grey..there are many colours there, some are quite vivid too, from Earth it does look grey however, because of the distances involved. But even with a filter for darkening the image, it's quite obvious from that one still there are multiple colours present in that picture...browns of various hues, purples, violets and even greens, unless there were multiple filters over the lens that took that image, a single filter as an explanation for the colour in that picture doesn't work, as there's more than one colour.

Different minerals will present different colours.

There's no mystery about the colours on the moon, except perhaps the public being told on a number of occasions that the moon is grey...which isn't strictly accurate, as we can see.

This is the most exiting venture we have had for many years.

I always wonder why Nasa have never returned with a Lunar rover to retrace the alleged Moon landings. Surely science has
vastly advanced, yet the reluctance of Nasa to return, even by an unmanned craft, makes no scientific logic whatsoever.
