Fake. No stars.
So I grab the image and turn up the contrast to ridiculous levels to see if any stars come up out of the gloom.
What I find instead is the moon having a very sharp left edge, as if the moon has been cut and pasted from elsewhere, or at the very least, processed
As the caption says:
This color image required a fair amount of processing to make a nice-looking release.
More than at first glance.
I suspect the earth and moon were indeeed processed seperately, then pasted onto a blank black background into their supposed proper positions.
