An Alien View of the Moon Transiting Earth | Universe Today
That is so cool!
That's pretty neat.
That is very cool.
This reaks of AWESOME!
I love space stuff.
But I bet it actually looks like a big steak to Galactus.
That's pretty cool, they probably use google universe to see it at home
That's awesome. Especially the video.
OM NOM NOM
But *tsk*... negative TFW e-peen points for not saying "Unicron".
I showed this to my fiancee (we're both science majors) and we both felt like we were missing something. the video shows the earth with the moon rotating around it. what's so special about that? granted, we didn't read the accompanying article.
^ How often do you get to see ACTUAL footage of the moon crossing the Earth from outside the former's orbit?
oh, wait, that video wasn't just some cg thing? even so, I mean, can't they just shoot up a satellite and press record for a day to get the same footage? doesn't seem like it'd be that awe-inspiring.
No, you have to be out beyond the orbit of the moon to get a vantage point like that. The spacecraft that took that video was 31 million miles away.
Wow, just wow.
These things always make me feel so insignificant
That's really awesome.
for some strange rason i suddenly want to watch 3rd rock from the sun.
