APOD: I Brought You the Moon (2018 Apr 01)

Post by APOD Robot » Sun Apr 01, 2018 4:18 am

Image I Brought You the Moon

Explanation: I love you so much that I brought you the Moon.
Please take it before this tree becomes more interested.
Also the Moon is heavier than I thought.
And I foolishly picked it up by the hot side by mistake.
But it is for you and, well, the others reading this APOD.
Promise to keep this image -- our image -- in a safe place, and know that it was taken in a single, well-planned exposure in Valladolid, Spain.
Please take it and keep it always as a token of our love and, well, April Fool's Day.

By the position of the "rabbit", it is a sunset
By the light angle, it is the northern hemisphere (obviating the information)
The marked angle (approx) corresponds to the latitude of the place

APOD PUBLISHES AN UNREAL COSMOLOGY, top-to-bottom.

It's so sad to see. No way in hell water can stick to the bottom of ANY sphere, let along a spinning sphere.

Don't you have a washing machine at home? Spinning squirts the water out the sides. Duh.

Bill Bryson and other videographers bring the lunar surface up close and personal.

So you can see who's up there.

Stop gaming us.
