Description

Explore our world from space! What part of the Earth is illuminatedby the sun? What's the current Moon phase? How does the Earth lookfrom the Moon?Features include:* Exciting widgets to view theSun/Earth and Moon from space in real time* Sun Rise / Sun Setinformation* Amount of daylight / darkness for given day on Earth*Moon Rise / Moon Set information* Custom location basedresultsViewing Earth from the Moon Looking at the Earth from theMoon, it's a relatively small, blue sphere. Because the Moondoesn't rotate, you have to be on the right side of the Moon to seethe Earth at all. If you're on the side of the Moon that can seethe Earth, it would be in your sky all day and night. The Earthstay in the sky but would wax and wane, just as the Moon does asseen from our world. So considering how memorizing people can finda full Moon, how would a bright full Earth look on the Moon? Fromthe Moon, the Earth would be about 3.7 times bigger in diameter.The Earth has a diameter of 7926 miles, compared to the Moon's only2159 mile diameter. The hardest thing to simulate is the differencein brightness. People lucky enough to walk on the Moon in our timeshave noticed a very striking phenomenon, a full Earth from the Moonappears much larger and is much brighter. It's true that a fullMoon can appear very bright due to its surface (composed of ratherreflective yet dull gray dust), however, the Earth has whiteclouds, oceans and polar ice caps which can reflect much more lightthat the Moon does. Remember, the Earth and the Moon do not giveoff they're own light, rather it's reflecting the sun's light.Earth and Moon phase Earth and Moon phases are direct opposites ofeach other, basically they appear as the other one does only inreverse. When we would see a nearly full Moon, people on the Moonwould see a slim crescent Earth. The next time you see a crescentMoon from Earth, imaging people on the Moon seeing a nearly fullEarth hanging in the lunar sky. Just like the Moon, Earth also goesthrough a cycle of phases over the period of a month, you will(from the Moon) witness a Full Earth, Gibbous Earth, Quarter Earth,Crescent Earth, and New Earth. The Moon always keeps one side(called the Near Side) facing Earth as it orbits around us, hence,depending on your location, Earth would always appear in the exactsame place in the night sky. If you were standing in the middle ofthe near side of the Moon, Earth would appear directly overhead. Ifyou are on the far side of the Moon, you would never see the Earthbecause that side of the Moon will never rotate to turn towardsEarth. If you were to walk to a place between the near and farsides of the Moon, the Earth would be "frozen" or about in a stateof being "half-risen" on the Moon's horizon. Measuring Albedo Theproperty of Earth's brightness when viewing from the Moon is amatter of Albedo or a measure of reflectivity of celestial bodies.Earth has an average Albedo of 0.367 or 36.7% of sunlightreflecting from it. The Moon has 0.12 or 12% Albedo. Earth is 3times brighter than the Moon. Astronauts that walking on the Moonsay that "Earth-shine" is so bright that it's almost like daytime.When the angles of the Earth and the Moon are right, the Earth'soceans act like a mirror, much like those garden globes that actlike small ball shaped mirrors in your garden. From the Moon, youcan see a mirror image of the sun reflecting off one of Earth'soceans. This makes Earth-shine view much more bright, colorful andinteresting rather than watching Moonshine from Earth. We cancertainly see how much Earth-gazing will be popular among the firstMoon colonies.Keywords:Earth, Moon, Space, Sun, Rise and Set,Daylight, Darkness, Day, Night

The NintendoFamily Computer then renamed to the Nintendo Entertainment System(NES) and the Sega SG-1000 are the most prominent members of thisfamily of consoles. The Sega Master System was soon to follow alongwith the Atari 7800. The best selling of all during this period wasthe NES/Famicom which remained the best selling console of all timeup until the original PlayStation. The technological advancement ofintroducing 16 bit systems such as the ones found in the MegaDrive/Genesis were usually considered to be the difference betweenthe end of the third generation and beginning of the fourthgeneration of video game systems.Donkey Kong was one of the best selling early arcade gamesproduced by Nintendo. Donkey Kong, Mario and Princess Peach wereoriginally designed as characters from the cartoon series Popeye.However they failed to obtain the rights to do so, so thecharacters are as we know them today. The first version of DonkeyKong helped invent the D-Pad controller, Gunpei Yokoi (who alsodesigned the Game Boy) decided that a cross shape with a concavecenter was the best way to control the 2D movement of Mario in thegame.The most famous cartridge for the original NES system was theone that came with it, Super Mario / Duck Hunt. The character ofMario was named after the Nintendo warehouse landlord in Seattlenamed Mario Segale. Mario appeared in Punch-Out!! without formalpermission, artist Makoto Wada simply drew Mario as the referee. Henever asked for formal permission however, maybe that's why hisface is a little off. Luigi first appeared in the 1983 Game andWatch's handheld version of Mario Bros, they were working at abottling plant, I guess they weren't certified to be plumbers yet.Memory space was very limited and had to be reused if necessary.This is why the 2nd playable character is usually a clone of theoriginal (including Luigi), because they couldn't add any more newcolors to the game, they made Luigi green the same as the turtleshell color green in the game, he's been green ever since. In JapanThe Legend of Zelda was voice activated, it allowed for players tokill certain enemies by shouting into the gamepad. According to theinstruction manual, which was sold internationally. It stated thatPols Voice enemy "hated loud noises". A little confusing for most,but made perfect sense to the Japanese players having the rightcontroller. There was an amazing version of duck hunt before whatwe know today as the classic NES game. It was a projector thatpresented moving ducks on the wall where you would shoot them witha very similar light gun, there's no laughing dog however.
