Earthrise, 1 Nov 2009

Earthrise This image was snapped as MLOTS passed over Thiessen Crater on the Moon's farside. Today is the full moon as viewed from Earth, and if you look carefully the new Earth is dimly visible as it rises above the limb of the moon. This was a lucky shot as the window on the docking alignment portal is not always aligned towards Earth. The Meshula Labs Orbital Transfer Station (MLOTS) at its current altitude completes a lunar orbit every 8 hours. Its primary function is electromagnetic capture of incoming vehicles from Earth bound for one of the Lunar Research, Resource, or Habitation Stations. To schedule an orbital transfer please contact MLOTS Logimetric Operations on standard frequencies. (PS, the configuration and lighting in the painting is correct for the place, time, and date indicated...:)
