Dark side of Moon

I'm not very good at keeping up with Chit Chat these days, but I don't recall anybody posting this subject matter already, but if they have I apologise.
From 37,000,000 miles out NASA has published these wonderful photo's of the Moon transiting the Earth. They were published in a number of newspapers last week.

Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Dark side of Moon

Not sure what the rational of producing a fake is, its not as if NASA is short of money and probably doesn't need the income from publishing rights.
But, some will find a conspiracy in anything I suppose.

Re: Dark side of Moon

But in my defence I did put a question mark after the sentence so it was really put as a question rather than a statement of fact so would ask you take this into consideration before passing sentence.

Just putting in my 2p's worth. May I suggest playing a Justin Bieber single on continuous loop for an hour. Harsh it may be but considering the utterance...

@Petlew, thanks for posting. It started an argument in our house.  Was the image taken from a Lagrange Point  (L1).

Point where the gravitational Pull of the Earth is equal to the Gravitational pull of the sun.
