Press Release - Pegasus Research Consortium - December 18, 2006
MUCH ADO ABOUT COLOR
For several days now we have heard from those who claim the images are not real color, or natural color etc... Let me set this to rest once and for all. The data I am going to provide here is taken from the PDF mission report courtesy of the Department of Defense's Ballistic Missile Defense Organization, the very people who funded the mission. One of my contacts linked me to the document so we can lay the color issue to rest.
Here are a few excerpts about the cameras and the type of images and spectral range they cover. Below that are a few images for comparison. At the end of this press release you will find a link to the DoD document.
About the Images
About the Cameras
To provide reliable, solid state, cost effective imaging
in the near ultraviolet,
Ok there you have it folks, the high resolution camera [b]ONLY[/b] takes images in the visible light spectrum. Those are TWO of the cameras and the ones important to the issue at hand. The rest of the data on cameras is extensive and can be found in the report.
The picture below is the one mentioned in the excerpt...
Now Saviour of the Real posted this image... BTW Saviour
I would like to thank you for providing us with so many leads to help us
prove our point :up:
SOURCE: CLEMENTINE - USGS IMAGES
This image is a composite with the previous image of the Earth showing Africa that has been enhanced and enlarged, then pasted above the b&w image of the moon at an altitude lower than it really is. Its a promotional picture. This line is found below the image at the USGS website...
Here are two more images from the same source proving once and for all that the camera on board Clementine not only CAN but DOES take real, normal, visible light spectrum images in true color, and very nice ones at that The images below were taken while Clementine was on its way to the moon, and with the MEDIUM UV/VIS camera!
Here is the source of PDF Official Mission File...
Look it over and we will bring it up again later to discuss the satellite
