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.


The highest resolution image ever taken of Earth. You really should click on it to see it in the original size.

    This looks like it was taken through a peephole. Where’s the rest of the hemisphere?

    This is not an “image taken of Earth”. This is a mosaic of many individual images projected on a sphere and rendered in a 3D graphics program.

    Okay, sure… but still a picture as pretty much many images posted here of Saturn and Jupiter are composites. Just because the images were stitched together by a computer doesn’t make it false. It is still made up entirely of real images.
