Astronomical question and answer 241

 

Frank L. Preuss

 

The picture of question 238 showed us that the earth is round. Which possibility is there, to see from earth that the earth is round, therefore without photos of a camera close to the moon?

 

With a lunar eclipse the opportunity is given, to see the round form of the earth as shade on the moon.

"Historically, the view of the Earth's circular shadow advancing across the face of the Moon was the first indication of the shape of the Earth."

With a lunar eclipse one can see, on the surface of the moon, of the full moon, the shade of the earth, the shade, which the light of the sun casts upon the moon, and it is round.

 

This is the end of "Astronomical question and answer 241"
To the German version of this chapter: Astronomische Frage und Antwort 241
