One more, hopefully these YouTubers (and specifically Kodiak posing as Tom) won’t mind us posting these. They are incredibly important to help people to understand the physical space the Earth occupies, so that you can understand that everything else you are told about who and where you are also is a lie.
To recap, here’s a photo of the moon from Earth, which you can see with the naked eye but here was taken with a regular digital camera with a zoom lens. According to a Google search, “The diameter of the Moon is 3,474 km. Now, let’s compare this to the Earth. The diameter of the Earth is 12,742 km. This means that the Moon is approximately 27% the size of the Earth.” Here’s the moon, as seen from Earth, with a basic camera and zoom lens.
Here’s a full moon snapped from Earth without a zoom lens, and I’ve seen moons like this in my own sky. The moon is only a quarter of the size of Earth.
And here’s Earth, about 4 times the size of the moon, using specialized high-tech NASA astronomy equipment, snapped from the surface of the moon:
Moreover, what is lighting up this rock? Even if the Sun were behind it, backlighting it, the entire mass of solid rock would not glow. Is it glowing in the above photo? Or the daytime photo below right, taken with an ordinary camera? Is NASA next going to tell people that the moon is a large phosphorescent rock? Maybe. But it isn’t.
