Earth and Moon

This is a very simple image, but I don't think I've ever seen it before and I like it. It just shows Earth and the Moon and the distance between them to scale.



Found at the blog Page F30, in a post that argues that Ceres might be a better target for colonization than Mars.

UPDATE: A commenter points to a similar image at Wikipedia which also depicts the speed of light at the same scale.

Wikipedia has the same image, but it shows a beam of light traveling at the correct speed between the earth and the moon. It's very cool:

I would be aware that as somebody who really doesn’t comment to blogs a lot (in actual fact, this may be my first put up), I don’t think the time period “lurker” is very flattering to a non-posting reader.
