The theme of this blog is not only and obviously space, but in particular “terrestrial worlds”, places that tend to have surfaces on which one could walk or at least attach oneself to. These places sometimes also have other earth-like familiar features such as atmospheres, weather, volcanos, geysers and perhaps, we are finding, even exotic oceans, rivers or lakes that are not necessarily made of familiar materials we are used to here at home. The second theme is imagery. Occasionally I do some retouching of images when needed if an image is incomplete or sometimes “dirty” or noisy. I will attempt to correct image shortcomings based upon other images or well-accepted presumed attributes. When this is done, notes will be offered as to what was added, why and sometimes how it was done. This way no one should ever wonder if something they are looking at is real or photoshop.
Looking at the inbound horizon about 55 mins before closest approach.

The more I look at this image, the more I like it. Imagine full motion video footage of this, sort of like Kaguya’s moon videos, only speeding much faster into the darkness here… It’d be one helluva video.
as much as i feel like mercury is just moon 1.1… i also like the look of the old mariner close up images. somehow it does “feel” different from the moon images we have all seen from the same era. for me it is just good seeing another world again.
