Is your avatar an oil painting? I love it.
Now about that gif. What are you saying? That the world as put forth by Nasa is always half illuminated?
I also have not heard anyone rebut Olbers's Paradox, which asks how we experience night if the world is surrounded by stars.
The oil Paintins is mine, see my website for lots more
Now the Gif is NOT a Gif , >>>The Mercury-bound MESSENGER spacecraft captured several stunning images of Earth during a gravity assist swingby of its home planet on Aug. 2, 2005. Several hundred images, taken with the wide-angle camera in MESSENGER's Mercury Dual Imaging System (MDIS), were sequenced into a movie documenting the view from MESSENGER as it departed Earth.
Comprising 358 frames taken over 24 hours, the movie follows Earth through one complete rotation. The spacecraft was 40,761 miles (65,598 kilometers) above South America when the camera started rolling on Aug. 2. It was 270,847 miles (435,885 kilometers) away from Earth - farther than the Moon's orbit - when it snapped the last image on Aug. 3.
