DISCUSSION

The above art by artist Mel Hunter is titled "eclipse of the sun by the earth, as seen from the moon." The setting shows a family of lunar settlers enjoying an eclipse from their lunar vantage point. The subject of the painting suggests benefits from exploration of the Moon with regard to astronomy. The Earth's atmosphere is detrimental to the world's telescopes. No such handicap exists on the airless Moon. The view of the cosmos through lunar astronomy observatories would be considerably clearer. Additionally, a lunar telescope would serve to study Earth's geography, climate, and pollution as well as the Earth's oceans (lunar oceanography).
