NASA as an organization is positioned to deliver some of the greatest and most inspiring images in human history and they don’t shirk from that duty. Ever since the earthrise from the moon, or since Carl Sagan exhorted the importance of getting that Pale Blue Dot picture taken, NASA has looked for ways to include all of us in space.

In Caleb Scharf’s post Earth Waves To Saturn: The PicturesEarth Waves to Saturn: The Pictures, NASA has not only done it again, they’ve included all of us in the most contemporary crowd-sourced way possible. The result is once again a reflection of our collective potential.

    There is no earthrise in the moon, because the moon always keeps the same side to the Earth. If you are in the side facing the Earth, you will see the Earth get dark and bright during the ~27-day orbital period, but it will always remain in the same place.

    Yes ! I think this is the photo shoot from the moon : Because the moon Wangri ( especially the full moon ) night, we can see many things on earth that can do a lot of things ! There is not a dark moonlit night , only to see the moon Hatsumi is the real night too ! Is not it ?

    If you in this side of the Moon facing the Earth does not move , you will not see the Earthrise and Earthdown, but if you move around the Moon , when you move from other side into this side of the moon ,you will see the Earthrise ,and when you move from this side into another side you will see the Earthdown.
