Solar Eclipse as Seen From the Moon: No Flat Earth

Image taken by iSpace’s Hakuto-R lander of the solar eclipse on April 23rd 2023. Note the dark spot on the Earth’s surface. This is the shadow cast by the moon. See video from the 2:05 mark for the eclipse.

The Japanese company iSpace’s Hakuto-R lander made a historic trip to the Moon. Along the way it captured video of the Moon and a photo of the moon’s shadow cast on the Earth during a solar eclipse. Unfortunately, the lander was likely lost during its Moon landing attempt on April 25, 2023.

A solar eclipse seen from the Moon with the Moon’s shadow on the Earth tells us the Moon is spherical and that the Earth is not some Flat Earth disk. These images were taken by a private Japanese company, not NASA or ESA. This shows how ludicrous claims are that the Earth is a flat disk in space. Flat Earth again refuted.

However the spherical globe of the beautiful Earth, created by God for our habitation is space, speaks of the wonderful design. Earth hangs there in space supported by nothing. Read The earth is not flat and hangs upon nothing! Job 26:7.
