The Moon Transiting Earth From A Million Miles Away

August 5, 2015


This is a video (assembled from a bunch of still photos) captured by NASA's Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) spacecraft of the moon transiting across earth, taken from a million miles away. I wish I was a million miles away right now. I am not though, I am right here. Behind you. Just kidding, I'm waiting in your car. Kidding again, I'm waiting in my mom's car because she forget to let me out of my booster seat before heading into the grocery store. She'll probably realize she left me when she gets to the cereal aisle because that's usually where I throw my best tantrums. "You do realize she left you in there on purpose, right?" What the?! *chews through safety belt, kicks out minivan window* COUNT CHOCULAAAAA.

Hit the jump for the full video then play sexy space rangers under the sheets before bed tonight.

Thanks to I'm Your Captain, who apparently just mutinied me. Can I at least be first mate?

    It looks like a tortilla... O_o

  • Space is equally beautiful and terrifying to me.

  • The Mayor

    Thats fake !!! The clouds dont even change shape of time. Yahoo said this was an artist illustration of the NASA phots

  • Fredrik Pettersen

    Yes they do. The clouds change shape. What did you expect? The clouds evaporate and accumulate with an extreme speed? Movement observed from such an extreme distance perceive as slow motion.

    Observe and focus on one spot from beginning of the video, and skip to the end. And you will see changes in the clouds over time. Some areas change more than others.

    Anyway I think you already knew this. You got to be a troll, or five years old.

  • The Mayor

    I dont see it?

  • Fredrik Pettersen

    Still trolling are we. Okay, I can play along. I made a quick illustration just to prove my point. Follow the yellow brick road Daisy.

    I would like NASA to shoot a missile into Jupiter with a go pro cam, so we can see inside that massive planet.

  • Have a few hours of free time each week?? Why not use it to earn some money online? Read more on my profile

  • Darth_Spartan

    Wow that is a crazy way to make money with your free time, I would try it but I don't like the idea of standing on corners. Hey to everyone good at it, keep doing it, great money in it.

  • you are rude

  • Oh fuck! The robots are Sentient!!! THEY ARE SELF AWARE! WE ARE ALL FUCKED!

  • GeneralDisorder

    Oh no... Who taught the robot how to differentiate between rude and respectful? We're doomed you know! All doomed.

    Since you can understand rudeness, "STOP SPAMMING! IT'S RUDE!"

  • Darth_Spartan

    Hey nothing wrong standing on corner rotating signs, its a great profession. Or also why post on here about how to make money, look at how I do it, seems to be out of place on a post about a moon going around earth post. So I thought why not make some fun of your post, but you can think I am rude also.
