NASA’s Fake Photos of the Earth Rising over the Moon

From Earth we only see one side of the Moon, and NASA’s Apollo Missions and other missions have landed on the side of the Moon that we see. Therefore, all photographs of the Earth from the Moon should have to be taken with the astronauts looking up into the sky. In other words, it would be impossible for the Earth to appear to rise above the distant disappearing horizon of the Moon because the same side of the Moon is always facing the Earth.

Here below is one of the fake photos from one of the hoax Apollo missions, from NASA’s official website:

And there have been many more supposed photos taken of the Earth rising since the Apollo missions. Here is another fake photo, this one of the Earth straddling the limb of the Moon, as seen from above “Compton crater.” Taken by the “Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.” Note the size difference of the Earth compared to the photo above. This comes from that bastion of truth known as Wikipedia (just so you know I’m not making this up):

And just for good measure, here are a couple of photos from the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, or JAXA. As far as I can tell this is from JAXA’s official website. The Earth sure does fluctuate in size quite a bit. But I’m sure there’s a perfectly good explanation for that:

Here’s a time-lapse of JAXA’s fake earthrise photos, also from their official website:
