Loren Grush's article on NASA Earth & Moon Gif is almost good... but...

She tries really hard to debunk all the "conspiracy theories" about the NASA GIF. It takes the moon around 28 days to orbit the earth... in this fake NASA animation the moon is moving as fast as the earth is rotating... In a 6 hour time lapse, the earth supposedly "rotates" one quarter and the moon would complete only 0.009% of it's journey around the earth (6 hours of the approximate 672 hrs). So yes, Loren, the GIF is totally fake.
