Great edit, KJ. You really have developed a fine technique for adapting these NASA images into beautiful (detailed and yet uncluttered) desktops. As anyone who has worked with other NASA images knows, restyling the photos to work is a complex and time-consuming task.

Great Picture... But just to let everyone know, the earth doesnt rise and set as veiwed from the moon like the sun(or moon) rises and sets as veiwed from earth. This is because the moon does not rotate (all of its rotaional motion it may have had in the past was exhasted via tidal forces caused by the earth). An interesting fact for fun: The gavational interaction (tethering) of the moon and earth (as the moon moves away from the earth (orbit expands)) actully causes the rotation of earth to gradually slow down. Each consecutive day is longer then the last (this effect in on the order of a second longer day, after about about 100,000 years)

This is a very historic image. Wouldn't you just love to go back in time and show it to H. G. Wells? It's gonna be on my desktop for a while.
