Fake Transit of Mare Orientale by humphreyhippo

Fake Transit of Mare Orientale

Very much inspired by John Kraus and his real ISS transit shots.

This render uses a couple of NASA resources - their CGI Moon Kit and an ISS model. Chromatic aberation was added in Blender (which I never do but seemed fitting here) and I added a bit more grain in Lightroom.

For the avoidance of doubt that this is fake, I used Mare Orientale as the backdrop - which is only occasionally visible on the limb of the moon and is never seen at this angle from Earth. It's a very cool crater.
I seem to recall you taking some great lunar pics of your own.
