;) ;) Surely you don't suspect that there could have been a little "Photoshopping" involved?  You really are too suspicious!  ;) ;)

Extra points for picking which is the real Donald Trump.
Mind you, I wonder what reasoned argument the Flat Earthers give against the last one. I have seen various things like:
  • The moon is too big! Well, no it's not, especially as DSCOVR is fixed at the L1 LaGrange point, but in a stable, kidney-bean-shaped orbit around the point. The L1 point itself is only meta-stable.

  • The clouds don't move. Well, the do, though not very much as the whole video is only about 4 hours, and the earth is huge.
If anyone is going to pick holes in the videos, they might as well use the full resolution ones:
DSCOVR: EPIC Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera, Moon transits earth or download the actual video  lunar_transit_2016_07_05.mp4,

This site gives more EPIC links: DSCOVR: EPIC Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera, Galleries.

Happy nit-picking!

General is actually where conspiracy topics are the most appropriate, imo. A fake NASA shot certainly belongs here. What about this is not serious enough for you? Sure people are poking fun at NASA for being fools, but the underlying topic certainly is serious. I could be wrong, and If I am I'm sure one of the moderators will move it.

John I would take a look at the source of the picture.  Certainly was not taken by an astronaut and have not seen anyone claiming it was besides you.

That green hue is the result of using a 10-channel hyperspectral camera.  Do some research it will also lead you to understand why there is also a purplish hue on the other side of the Moon.

Are you on some type of medication?  Seems you go from posting intelligent arguments to stuff like this and given kudos to someone thinking a commercial was evidence the Earth was flat and AMD is in on it.

There was no solar exclipse, i.e. Moon passing in front of the Sun as seen from Earth, on the date when the photo was supposed to be taken, so the photo is a fake ... like the Deep Space Climate Observatory satellite at location L1 between Earth and the Sun. It is a typical example of NASA fakery. Yawn!

No one was stating there was a solar eclipse or that there an eclipse expected. If you actually look at the image you will note a slim crescent of dark on both earth and moon showing the the moon was certainly not line up exactly between the earth and the sun.

I had thought of you as someone who had some knowledge of orbital mechanics, but I was sadly mistaken.

DSCOVR does not just orbit the sun fixed at the L1 point. One reason for this is that L1 is only quasi-stable, so if a satellite parked there moves slightly out of place the gravitational field will not return it to L1, but move it further away.

Instead DSCOVR is in a stable "kidney bean" shaped orbit about L1.

Hence most of the time DSCOVR is not in line between the sun and the earth. This is evidenced (as already pointed oit) by the line of shade on the moon and the earth.

So, Heiwa, you can go back to sleep again, as you seem to have nothing to offer on this topic.

Ski you usually play the game,
What about the photo do you find suspicious?

I'll go first; lack of land mass, moons green border, no stars, also as heiwa pointed out, it kind of looks at first glance that the side of the earth photographed is facing the sun as the moon transits.

All of these are easy enough to explain.

Edit, for me its hard to get my head around seeing something so large in that perspective.

Yes, there are people who believe that photo is real. Me for one.

Then there's the astronaut who posted it on twitter. And I would guess the people who work on the DSCOVR::EPIC project think it's real too. I expect there are others.

The reason NASA sucks at photoshopping so much, is because people with real talent usually aren't pieces of sh*t.

Also, EPIC did record the shadow of the moon crossing the earth during the eclipse on March 9th this year:

Assuming you're referring to the link I posted?

Well, Heiwa said there was no eclipse on the date of the photos of the moon passing in front of the earth.
Mainframes pointed out that an eclipse was not implied or expected.
I additionally pointed out that when there is an eclipse, EPIC can record the moon's shadow crossing the earth. I thought the photos were quite cool too.

Does that explain the point?

But since you weren't able to notice the date in either of those places, I'll tell you it was March 9th 2016.

Well, shouldn't we all agree that the Sun is always behind the Deep Space Climate Observatory Satellite lined up with planet Earth at L1 in space and then ... it happens ... the Moon moved in between, so you could not see part of the Earth behind the Moon from the satellite.

It can only happen when a solar eclipse occurs on Earth.

A person on Earth observing the Deep Space Climate Observatory Satellite with solid sun glasses, could not see the Deep Space Climate Observatory Satellite as a spot in front of the Sun - the Moon was in the way. There was an eclipse!

The NASA clowns made a mess of it ... again!

If that were true, then there would be a solar eclipse every time there was a new moon.  However, because of the moon's orbital inclination, a new moon does not always result in a solar eclipse and a full moon does not always result in a lunar eclipse.

You are right. But when the NASA Deep Shit/Space Climate Observatory Satellite takes a photo of the sunny, gray side of the new Moon passing in front of our planet Earth behind it from position L1 in the shit, there should be a solar eclipse on the Earth below. No doubts about it. Only NASA shills/shit believe otherwise.
