Very cool !

 

A NASA camera aboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite captured a unique view of the moon as it moved in front of the sunlit side of Earth last month. The series of test images shows the fully illuminated “dark side” of the moon that is never visible from Earth

 

These images were taken between 3:50 p.m. and 8:45 p.m. EDT on July 16, showing the moon moving over the Pacific Ocean near North America. The North Pole is in the upper left corner of the image, reflecting the orbital tilt of Earth from the vantage point of the spacecraft.

I think I saw a prism.


They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

It must not be one of those nights when the angle is right as the moon isn't a slender crescent.

I do see a circle show a less ghostly glow though.

The satellite is actually in the silence between whisper and shout...the space between wonder and doubt

There is no dark side.

I certainly was in the right...
