So, technically, this is what it would look like if the Moon were a disco ball AND orbited Earth at the same distance as the International Space Station, i.e. roughly 420 kilometers (260 miles) above the surface of the Earth. But that doesn't make it any less incredible looking. »4/05/14 9:30am 4/05/14 9:30am
The International Space Station orbits at roughly 420 kilometers (260 miles) above the surface of the Earth. What would it look like if the Moon circled about our planet at a similar distance? Pretty damn epic, that's what. »10/16/13 8:00am 10/16/13 8:00am
You're looking at a stunning example of something astronomers and stargazers called "Earthshine." Known by some as "the old Moon in the new Moon's arms," Earthshine is a phenomenon first formally described by Leonardo da Vinci some 500 years ago. »3/26/12 1:58pm 3/26/12 1:58pm
