Most likely Obama asked them not to publish more photos because of the discrepancies between those new images and our Nevada desert 'moon' pics.

Ever wondered why other countries had to only show black & white moon images? Someone must have paid them dearly...

Re: UPDATED: China releases TWO NEW pics of the Moon and claims it's the "last time".
UPDATE:

China's government just released TWO new pics, AGAIN one allegedly taken by the rover and another taken by the lander. NO 360° panoramic images as they promised.


IMAGE ( [link to p1.img.cctvpic.com] )


IMAGE ( [link to p1.img.cctvpic.com] )


The rover and lander have taken photos of each other for the fifth and final time. And the next step is scientific survey and exploration.

Clear, complete images of the Chang’e-3 lander have been sent back to Earth. The Yutu rover carries a Panoramic Camera for real-time video transmission. The camera provides stereo images in high-resolution, and three-dimensional imaging.
 Quoting: [link to english.cntv.cn]


LOL total pitch-black sky and the position of the rover's shadow didn't change in ONE week.

------------------------

UPDATE:


IMAGE ( [link to p4.img.cctvpic.com] )


This is the alleged pic of the lander Chang'E 3 taken by the rover, and it looks a CGI job to me. The quality is way inferior to the pic of the rover, and it should be exactly the opposite, as long as the cameras of the rover are supposed to take hi-res images.

But what bothers me most is that EARTH is nowhere to be seen in the sky behind the lander, but the satellite dish of the rover is pointed in that direction.


IMAGE ( [link to p2.img.cctvpic.com] )


wtf

----------------------------------------------------

UPDATE: The mission specialist claim the command center is downloading the images in almost-real-time (20 seconds delay), what means there's no time for tampering.

[link to n37i.img-up.net]

------------------------------------------------------

Besides the fact that NO stars are seen in the sky whatsoever, pay attention to what seems to be the reflection of the right solar panel on the ground. That look odd to me.


 Quoting: Ford Prefect


Of course the shy is going to be totally black. The surface of the moon is very bright and the camera's exposure settings would have to adjust for that, which would cause the sky to be black. What's so hard to understand about that?

Try taking a picture of your cars headlights at night and see if you can also see the stars in the sky.

The "exposure" explanation dies here:

Why can't you see stars during the day?

Stars do glow during the day, but we can't see them because of the glare of sunlight. When the sun is up, the blue color in sunlight gets scattered all over the atmosphere, turning the sky the familiar bright blue color. This blue light is much brighter than the faint light coming from the stars, so it prevents us from seeing them.

If you were standing on the Moon, for instance, where there is no atmosphere, you would see the stars both day and night.

Someone help me out here:

The lander snapped the rover two times, the terrain has changed which suggests the rover also changed direction but there's NO trails of turning on the ground.

[link to n24i.img-up.net]

I mean, first the rover went til the edge of a crater, then turned 360° on its own pivot, either drove back in the exact same trail or took off flying until the other side of the lander, is that correct??

And the direction of its shadow is the same the whole time.

I call BS.

Take a look at the pic of the rover on its own [link to p2.img.cctvpic.com]
Now look at the track marks on the ground, that appears to have travelled a distance. The 'turnaround' tracks don't appear as if they would be formed like that either, they would leave mounds of collected dirt and the track marks wouldn't remain that uniform as it would hit resistance and the soil would turn up. But the image appears almost as if someone has created an almost perfect circle with some type of 'Rolling stamp'...if you undrstand what I'm trying to say

Also, that picture angle has been taken at height, is the lander camera fitted with a telescopic boost that the camera is fitted on? If not, who or what took that picture at a higher elevation?

Re: UPDATED: China releases TWO NEW pics of the Moon and claims it's the "last time".

Of course the shy is going to be totally black. The surface of the moon is very bright and the camera's exposure settings would have to adjust for that, which would cause the sky to be black. What's so hard to understand about that?

Try taking a picture of your cars headlights at night and see if you can also see the stars in the sky.

The "exposure" explanation dies here:

Why can't you see stars during the day?

Stars do glow during the day, but we can't see them because of the glare of sunlight. When the sun is up, the blue color in sunlight gets scattered all over the atmosphere, turning the sky the familiar bright blue color. This blue light is much brighter than the faint light coming from the stars, so it prevents us from seeing them.

If you were standing on the Moon, for instance, where there is no atmosphere, you would see the stars both day and night.

Seeing the stars with your eyes and taking a picture are two different things. Go try it for yourself. try taking a picture of a streetlight at night and see if the stars show up your picture.
 Quoting: Paige


Yet the lack of lunar atmosphere would allow the camera to catch a faint bright of stars in the background, as we can see in 45 yo pictures taken by the Russian Lunokhod rover:

You want me to believe that Russians photographed stars in the lunar sky with analogical cameras half century ago and modern hi-res digital can't do it???
 Quoting: Ford Prefect


The exposure explanation does not die there. The dynamic range of the sensor and exposure time, and brightness of the stars in the background are all part of the equation -- your junior high level thinking is insufficient.

Thanks again for lowering the overall IQ of the US -- you are what makes this country formerly great.

What I wanna know is why on NASA Apollo color images the Moon has a grey soil and in the Chinese pics the soil is brown/reddish.

Ummm, Analog video versus digital? 40+ years of technological advancement?

Was black and white film used? I know they were at least still showing black and white TV programs in the early 60's.

Its real, they have a ground penetrating radar on it to look for rare minerals. They think the area they are checking out is full of minerals. The race to mine the moon is starting.

moon conspiracy is one of the funnest...

but saying the same thing over and over doesn't make it true

There is no evidence on this thread that this was staged or the pics are fake.

I'm actually disappointed.

nice try OP

...will stay tuned for anything compelling

Do you really think the Chinese gov't thinks people are that stupid... The whole world is seeing these photos...

and you can bet the ENTIRE scientific community as well (with much scrutiny)

Do you really think they (the scientific community-every college) would be keeping their mouth shut if the shadows were wrong???????

shadows?

that's where your putting your chips??? blatant pic imagery.???

you cant be serious.

To everyone bitching about stars not being visible -- stars aren't visible in space

Our atmosphere makes starlight visible; stars are generally invisible from space to the wavelength we know as "visible" light, hence the reason for infrared on Hubble, etc
