They thought they were clever....

But it only took me about 5 minutes to find the source image for this landing denier's silly Stanley Kubrick Photoshop mashup.

Thank you! 

You know just the other day I was remembering that someone had done some really excellent weather satellite image comparisons from the Apollo mission periods, but I couldn't remember who it was.  I was therefore quite pleased when I clicked on your website link and found out it was you! 

Really terrific work, which I've now saved for future reference.

And thank you :)

I've just spent quite a while updating those pages - adding more Earth images, using an astronomy app mission simulator to get the correct views of Earth and so on. Need to do the Earth Orbit ones at some point but time is precious.

I didn't know about the Apollo 8 examples.  Those were a nice surprise.

i'd like to keep those images for future reference. Is that okay?
Well, it is like this: The truth doesn't need insults. Insults are the refuge of a darkened mind, a mind that refuses to open and see. Foul language can't outcompete knowledge. And knowledge is the result of education. Education is the result of the wish to know more, not less.

Of course!  They're meant to be shared. 

I think folks are entitled to know that the moon landing deniers are an inherently dishonest bunch.

Since I now and then work as a paid photographer, I'm conscious about copyright and intellectual property, so I have to ask.

I have saved both images, and will apply them as warranted. Thanks.
