    Moon News

    A couple of little items that may be of interest to list members though
    there's almost no navigation in them.
    1) The Weather Channel fixed their moon! Many of you probably recall a
    thread from June 2006 in which I pointed out that the Moon graphic on the
    Weather Channel on US TV and their web site looked odd. In fact, it was a
    view of the Moon that could only be seen from "out there" since it showed a
    large portion of the lunar Far Side. It was derived from a photo taken by
    the Apollo astronauts, and they've been using this graphic for at least
    twenty years. Well, they've replaced it with a proper Full Moon as it
    appears from good old terra firma. So tell me: which list member called them
    up and explained it to them?? :-)
    2) Speaking of Apollo astronauts, if you have a chance, go see "In the
    Shadow of the Moon". I really enjoyed it. And don't wait to see it on a
    small screen (unless you have a serious home theater setup).
