Sorry if this is a little bit pedantic but as someone who owns a DSLM (basically a DSLR but without a mirror) I've always considered the human eye to be more like a camera with a 16mm lens attached and a sensor that can move left or right. 50mm lenses have a slightly closed in field of view which means their peripheral vision tends to be closer to the middle of the lens, if you try and get your hand to show up from the side of the shot whilst also keeping it to the side of the lens you'll find that the only way for that to be possible is to slightly cover the lens. The peripheral vision of a 16mm lens however tends to be a good bit further, which means you can get your hand to show up in the shot without it covering the lens. As for my analogy about the moving sensor, while the human eye generally sees in a way that feels like 50mm we're still able to see things that are on the far left or right side of our eyes without those things needing to cover our eyes, and instinctively our eyes will move to see what those things are with more clarity.The human eye is much closer to a 50mm lens
And so the probability of seeing the Moon exists, it is a certainty, and yet during all the direct ones, whether it is this year in 2021, or even the previous years, the Moon does not appear.
There must have been thousands of hours of livestream from the ISS. My suggestion would be to look through that and see if you can find the moon.
Are you sure? Have you looked at all of them?yet during all the direct ones, whether it is this year in 2021, or even the previous years, the Moon does not appear.
Since the camera is pointing at the surface, you'd need to find the moon rising or setting for it to be near the horizon. For that, you need the camera pointing east or west; right now it seems to be looking northeast.And indeed, when I see space on this live, it's only about 20% of the screen, the remaining 80% is Earth.
I don't generally look at the live feed.I see that there are many of you here, and I see that none of you have seen the Moon in any direct from space.
But you know how it looks? and you know the ISS is in a rather low orbit compared to the size of the Earth, so that live feed is pretty much what it looks like "zoomed out".And to my knowledge, and I may be wrong, I have never seen an astronaut equipped with digital cameras, film the Moon and even the Earth during a live.
Russian cosmonaut Sergei Kud-Sverchkov on Tuesday published footage of the Moon setting filmed from the International Space Station (ISS).
The video shows how the Moon gradually flattens and then completely vanishes in the dark. “Its reflected light passes through the Earth's atmosphere and gets distorted. The Earth's horizon itself is invisible - everything happens at night. Therefore, it seems that the moon magically dissolves in the air," the cosmonaut wrote in the caption of the video on VKontakte.
