  • departing Earth (video)

    I just saw this on Slashdot... it's a video of the Mercury-bound MESSENGER spacecraft departing from Earth. It's only a few seconds long, but I think it's fascinating.

    To see the reflection of the star we call "Sun" bouncing off this rock is simply incredible.

Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent.

    I used Quicktime to play it frame by frame.

    What is the flash of light on the dark side of Earth in frame "2005-08-03T20:39:51.783831"?

      looks like it could be light refracting through the atmosphere onto the other side of the earth. I don't know though.

        Could just be an artifact of the digital image? I see another interesting small, white flash roughly centered in the light side of Earth in frame "2005-08-03T13:03:51.786412"

            Wow, that is pretty amazing. It looks almost computer generated to me at some points. Thanks for posting that Wyz.

                    I think it's computer generated, it looks too unreal
