    Nice shot!!! And although the Moon is 2159 miles in diameter no Horizon to be seen, you'd think you would see for hundreds and hundreds of miles. Also, notice the shadow of the Lunar module cast forward and to the right keep this in mind.



    This an opposite angle of the site, the shadow of Lunar module isn't leaning forward as much anymore, in any case, look at the Horizon in this angle, none, just more dark side of the Moon all around Apollo 11.



    Yes, the money shot!!! Here the astronaut is at the rear of the module where the luggage compartment is situated, lol, as you can see the shadow of the craft is leaning forward and to the right when facing it. In this visual you will note the shadow reaches the extremities of the lit-up surface of the Moon "that's a mighty long shadow" and again, no Horizon to be seen only more dark side of the Moon encircling the whole site. 360 degrees of darkness around the Apollo mission.

    What are you trying to say? The moon is smaller than the earth? DUH!

    Yes of course you've been to many planets, lol, and all the Horizons you've seen on Earth are all the curvature of the Earth, rotf, you've never even been in an airplane, for if you have, you would see that which your eyes once saw as a limited field of vision (Horizon) is as flat as the rest of your surrounding area where you live.

    Thats because the higher you are from the surface of Earth, the further the horizon is. It has nothing to with being flat, If the earth was flat,(which it isnt) you would be able to see from one side to the other. Permitting landscapes where not obscuring the view.

    You are confused, if the higher you go the further you see the Horizon then the Horizon is not the curvature of the Earth science says it is. And no human can see unlimited, some people can't see a book in front of them without the help of glass.

    REPEAT: For observers on the ground with eye-level at h = 5 ft 7 in (5.583 ft), the Horizon appears at a distance of 2.89 miles.


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horizon

    Science says the Horizon is a curvature. "Did I lose you yet?"

    A curvature is an arch. "Did I lose you yet?"




    According to the source web page above, the Horizon would appear at a distance of 2.89 miles, on a Round Earth the observer would always be standing at the top center of an arch, so we must multiply that distance by 2 to get the full length of the arch. One degree of a circle is an arch.

    2.89 mi * 2 = 5.78 miles.

    This arch is 5.58 mi and represents 1 degree of the supposed Round Earth.
    Lets multiply the length of the arch by 360 to get the circumference of the Earth.

    5.78 mi * 360 = 2080.8 miles = circumference of the Earth = HAHAHA....ROTF...HAHAHA....LOL.....HAHAHA.

    Newcastle, please quit the acerbic, juvenile comments. Displays of paranoid angst are not welcome here. Offer your thoughts in a cool objective manner, or find them deleted without further warning.

    Newcastle, I'm going to humour you, because I find your hypothesis delightful.

    So you're saying the moon is flat, like the Earth. And you're said elsewhere that the sun gyrates above Earth's north pole. Presumably, in keeping, the moon also gyrates above the Earth. Like the sun it swoops low and disappears to local view when it happens to be scudding over distant lands. And it must be lower than the sun as witnessed during eclipse. You said before that ISS and other orbital bodies actually rest on Earth's atmosphere, like boats at sea, so naturally the moon is supported likewise?

    Now we've got the moon, facing Earth like a bingo chip over a dinner plate. And some guys took a rocket up, and landed on the near face, upside down relative to Earth observers. With their heads suspended in the clouds of Earth?
