Clouds Across the Moon was written by accident. While searching for ways to prove
to stupid people that they were wrong and we did go to the Moon, it occurred to me
that there had been weather satellites at the time of Apollo.
After a bit of searching, I discovered a variety of sources for satellite photographs,
and set about matching them with Apollo images of Earth.
This turned into a 3 year project trawling the internet for satellite photographs,
video clips, newspaper photographs and any other source I could find and writing
it up for every mission - including the Earth Orbit ones that genuinely didn’t go
I’m not the only person this has occurred to, but this is the only place you’ll find
a comprehensive analysis of each Apollo mission’s images of Earth.
The result is below. You can either read the entire pdf document (a hefty 55 Mb download),
or you can read through the web pages that I created from that pdf. Please bear in
mind that the web version gets updated more frequently than the pdf, and some things
(like video links) may be omitted entirely.
I tend to update the versions on this site and the Dropbox link more often than Scribd,
take your pick!
