Extreme Close Up Of The Moon Looks Mesmerizing
For us mere mortals, the moon is just a round of cheese that glows super bright in the night sky (and sometimes during dusk hours). But technology goes forward and right now, if you have the cash, you can purchase a super awesome digital camera that can pass over the 239,000 miles between the Moon and us so that you can take a selfie with it! Telescopes are so overrated.
Nikon just released its COOLPIX P900 camera with a zoom so powerful, you can see craters on the moon's surface. Let us remind you that the moon is close to 239,000 miles from Earth.
You can see the actual holes on the moon's surface where it's been hit by asteroids and comets thanks to the cameras 83x zoom. It's so powerful you can even watch the moon move across the sky as Earth rotates. The second most remarkable feature about that camera is that image is surprisingly stable for such an extreme zoom.
If you don’t feel uncomfortable enough just yet, how about checking out this clip of the Moon zoomed in and passing in front of super tiny Saturn. The clip has been recorded just as the Moon passes right in front of the ringed planet, eventually covering the sight of it! So cool!
The moon is the most fantastic element in the night sky, and it is additionally the brightest, and it looks mesmerizing, however, did you know that the planet doesn't radiate its light. It is mirroring the light emitted by the sun. Just seven percent of the view from the sun is reflected. Once in a while, the moon seems to change shape, however, it is merely because the sun is lighting different parts of it.
At the point when the moon goes through the world's shadow, and the earth comes directly between the sun and the full moon, it's known as a lunar shroud. This is when the moon is dimmed, and it turns in to a dark copper color. Isn't that so amazing?
When you take a glance at the moon from earth, it looks delicate with light and dull shades of blue and dark. The soft parts of the moon are broad, level fields that were first seen by Galileo, an Italian researcher. He was the first person to take a look at the planet through a telescope in 1609.
He, perhaps, imagined that the fields were water since he called them "maria," which is a Latin word that means Seas. Today we have found that they are tremendous, deep, holes with edges secured by rock and soil. "Maria" seems to infer that there is water on the moon, yet we currently realize that there is none on its surface.
These days, and the modern technology everybody can be Galileo and explore the beauty of the moon and enjoy the sight of it and the light reflecting from the Sun. Maybe even find out if there is life on the Moon? What are your thoughts, it their life out there?
