Is NASA Photoshoping the Astronomy Picture of the Day??? Yup

As you can obviously see behind thr right side of the smaller moon pictured here, and especialy when you turn up the brightness, is an obvious photoshop cover up of something, do you believe the NASA explanation?

As quoted by Fox News, DominatorPS3 said: “More solid proof of NASA/ government cover-ups. And this is recent. You can do this yourself!!”

Dominator PS3’s tell-all YouTube video has been taken down, allegedly because he received death threats. But he’s put up a follow-up video, which you can watch here.

NASA’s Emily Lakdawalla, who was responsible for the photoshopping, explained it over at

Cassini takes color pictures by snapping three sequential photos through red, green, and blue filters. In the time that separated the three frames, Dione moved, so if I did a simple color composite I would be able to make Titan look right, but not Dione; or Dione look right, but not Titan. So I aligned Dione, cut it out, and then aligned Titan, and then had to account for the missing bits of shadow where the bits of Dione had been in two of the three channels.
