A scene you will probably never get to see.

This is the sunset at the North Pole with the moon at its closest point. You also see the sun below the moon. An amazing photo and not one easily duplicated. You may want to pass it on to others.

    I would love to use this image. How can I get ahold of the copyright holder and get a higher resolution version?

    This picture is not real. It is Photoshopped and done … Very poorly.

    At that Angular Distance from the Sun, the Moon simply would not be visible. and even worse, the Sun and Moon share almost the same exact angular diameter when viewed from Earth, meaning that they are almost exactly the same apparent size. The Moon does not appear thousands of times larger than the Sun from the Earths surface. Ever.
    Also, there is Ice at the North pole.

    It is fake! I think it is totally rendered in 3D.

    Maybe even with a ready out-of-the-box renderer like Terragen… Look carefully: everything is anti-aliased – even the reflections. I deal with 3D and computing terrains look exactly that way =)

    Funny, a prank.

    Hi whether or not its Photoshopped, I still wanna use it as a potential book cover for my novel, probably temporarily, but where can I go to ask if I can use it for Copyright laws? It’s really cool no matter if it was photoshopped or not!!! 🙂
