    I tried "moonset over sea" and "...over ocean"
    on Google, and found one good movie from a space station,
    and two photos which seem completely unrealistic,
    and I suppose they are taylored.
    APOD also does not give any reasonable picture.
    
    Is it indeed true that one cannot see it???
    
    Alex.

    there are islands in the way :(
