EPIC View of Moon Transiting the Earth

This animation features actual satellite images of the far side of the moon, illuminated by the sun, as it crosses between the DSCOVR spacecraft’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) and telescope, and the Earth – one million miles away.

    Lol NASA Keeps deleting comments that contain proof that this is fake…
    Proof right there

    it looks fake! i feel like i’m watching a south park episode. the dark
    shadow on the right gives it an un-natural look to it and makes it seem as
    if its a cardboard cut out. i’m sure its real but still it looks funny.

    Did anybody else notice the little blink of light at 11 o’clock at video
    marker :15?

    the dark side of the moon is rather uneventful it seems. one would think
    the side away from earth would get a much harder beating than the shielded

    look so fake, my opinion !

  7. Edgar Redondo says:

    porque en todas, TODASSSS, las fotos de la nasa ya sea de planetas, de la
    luna o las ultimas de pluton, no nos dejan ver las estrellas, es como si
    las recortaran, este vídeo parece un montaje, alrededor de la luna se ve
    como un halo verde, alguien sabe porque no podemos ver las estrellas?? que
    se oculta??

    This is total bs ! First of all the dark side of the moon is bright !
    Second no stars ! Third clouds dont move !

    notice how there are no alien bases.

    What I find interesting is all the comments about how fake and the other
    side saying it is not. If you just read the actual published comment you
    would see that this is fake = “This animation” which includes Real
    =”features actual satellite images of the far side of the moon.” So in this
    case, both parties are right. The animation portion is fake, but the actual
    moon is derived from photos taken. Way to go general education system.

      They must have failed you as well, seeing as how the definition of
      animation is a series of successive pictures to create an illusion of
      movement. Like did you even know that old cartoons were actual drawings?
      Flip books?! Thanks education systems.

    fools only would believe this,where were they when they take the pic, and
    were they on the moon or in the earth and how far the world camera reach to
    capture the earth include the moon?look its not true okay….. NASA always
    would deceive you… let them go search for the missing aeroplane

  12. TheRockerxx69 says:

    Did the moon create an eclypse on this occasion??? Does the moon rotates on
    itself ??? 

  13. ShAdYlTrAiN says:

    Wow that is some crappy CGI!! At least they do admit that the earth is
    animated!! Look around the right side of the moon as it transitions across
    the right side of the screen. Green pixelated CGI back screen for editing.
    They could at least use the updated geographical layout of the continents.
    At least for the true “globalist”. 

  14. Sharon Younkin says:

    totally cool!

  15. mindy says:

    wake up people, this is unreal animation. definetly not real :))

  16. Wiktor Kobylinski says:

    Who knows the date when the pictures were shot? It was a new moon.

  17. El Osmodivs says:

    How come clouds never move in NASA’s videos?

  18. Chris Carbaugh says:

    I don’t blame people who are screaming about how fake this looks, but its a
    lousy 4 megapixel camera floating 1 million miles away. The images are not
    going to be remotely high definition, nor will they capture major cloud and
    atmospheric changes in only a few hours worth of images.

    Could it be fake? Sure. Was the first moon landing fake? Maybe. But they
    are about to release regular images from this satellite next month with a
    new image every 12-36 hours. Will all those be fake too? I doubt it.

    We have technology like this out there floating around like giant space
    junk taking photos and monitoring space weather and earth’s atmosphere. Its
    not fake. We really are doing these things and reaching out into the

    One day people will be looking at shitty animations of some far off area of
    Laniakea millions of miles away claiming its fake too.
