  •  That moon photo is a fake (1+ / 0-)

    This is irrelevant to the important political issue being discussed, but I'm pretty sure that photo of the arch with the moon in the background is a fake.  It looked wrong to me (I'm a moon lover, photoographer and astronomer); the moon has the wrong angular size.   If you blow up the image you can see some squares around the moon where it was photoshopped in.

    It pisses me off when people think that an image of nature isn't beautiful enough, so they try to "enhance" it.   If you really need a moon in your photo, go out there and wait for the moon...it is predictable... then it will at least look real!!

    •  It's in the SE, where it should be (1+ / 0-)

      The photo is taken looking SE with a setting sun, so it looks to be in the right place. Looks like it was taken in October, with early snow on the mountains.
