    1994 NASA STS-64 Mission & Lights Seen in the Sky Over Africa

    What role, if any, might the STS-64 NASA Mission have had in the various reports of strange lights in the sky over Zimbabwe between 14 September and 16th September 1994? The NASA mission ran 9 Sept 1994 - 20 September 1994. During the mission it did ran three experiments that may have been...

    Need ID: Strings over Clouds on Satellite Pictures

    A user on reddit came up with a satellite picture taken on Nov 9 over the nimitz strike group training area. It shows some pixelated lines above the clouds, that arguably look like compression artifacts. However, I zoomed out and tried to find other lines like these but couldnt. So I figured...

    How to test if Satellites are real

    Source: Some people think space, and hence the existence of satellites, is fake. The most obvious refutation of this is that you have to point your satellite dish exactly at the right satellite in the sky for it to work. There's no way of faking...

    Explained: Why We Don't See Satellites in Photos Taken From The ISS

    Claim: We should be able to see some of the supposedly thousands of satellites in photos taken from the ISS. But we never see any of them. That's a recurring claim within the flat-Earth community, usually followed by concluding the ISS and other satellites are fake, and all the pictures are...

    How to Prove Satellite Images are Real - Ground Truth

    The above image was taken by the GOES-15 (West) satellite at 11AM (PDT) today, Jun 5, 2017. At least that's what NASA would have you believe. But we don't have to take their word for it, we can check for yourself. Verifying that satellite images are real is done by comparing them against the...

    Full-Disk HD Images of the Earth from Satellites

    There are several satellites that take photos of the full disk of the earth on a regular basis, but the most impressive are the three above. The first two (Himawari-8 and GOES-16) are geostationary satellites taking photos from 22,236 miles above the Earth's equator. The third, DSCOVR is located...

    Satellite photos of clouds

    I keep seeing on these forums the regulars posting satellite photos of the relevant time and place whenever clouds, contrails, etc. are being discussed. I assume there's clearly a publicly available resource for this kind of thing? Can someone provide a link?

    Explained: Giant "Contrails" going from Africa to Australia

    Some strange white lines appeared on the iPhone "Living Earth" app this morning. These are obviously not aircraft contrails, as they are far too long and straight. The most likely explanation is some kind of image processing glitch. But how did it get there? Shortly after I took those...

    Contrails in satellite images pre-1995

    Hi all, after a heated chat with a chemtrailer, and looking at so many misinformed satellite images on their sites showing contrails, I would like to get some of these satellite images but before the 1995 "big bang" year. I am sure there are some, although resolution was not so good at that...
