You need to upgrade your Flash Player 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.

Japan’s Lunar probe has taken images like this before. Still… just pretty.

    Apparently, these images date back to April 6, 2008. I’m trying to make out what part of earth we’re looking at, but my best guess is that Central America, Mexico, and California are off to the left. South is up and slightly to the right. If you squint, you can even make out the Baja peninsula and the Sea of Cortez. Does that seem right?
