Thermal Imaging The Moon, The Sun And Saturn.

What Is Thermal Imaging: the technique of using the heat given off by an object to produce an image of it or locate it.

Thermography:  Infrared thermography (IRT), thermal imaging, and thermal video are examples of infrared imaging science. Thermographic cameras usually detect radiation in the long-infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum (roughly 9,000–14,000 nanometers or 9–14 µm) and produce images of that radiation, called thermograms. Since infrared radiation is emitted by all objects with a temperature above absolute zero. thermography permits us to see an invisible environment with or without visible illumination. The amount of radiation emitted by an object increases with temperature; therefore, thermography allows one to see variations in temperature. When viewed through a thermal imaging camera, warm objects stand out well against cooler backgrounds; humans and other warm-blooded animals become easily visible against the environment, day or night. As a result, thermography is very useful to the military and other users of surveillance camera’s.

What are the meanings of the Colors?
Their are many factors to take into consideration  when we are viewing Thermal Images;  The color  is a map of the temperature (base) and the temperature (range).

Colors – It’s important to understand that particular colors are not assigned to a particular temperature in all thermal images.
Colors are simply a visual aid to understanding the temperature gradients involved in each image. Colors are assigned arbitrarily
according to the particular color map used for an image  
It would be incorrect to assume that particular colors may be warmer or cooler. information about the surface temperature of the Moon are contained 
in its emitted thermal infrared (IR) radiation.

We can see where the temperatures collide and interact. Thermal imaging is also used to decipher the temperatures of the inside of the Moon.

    1. Thanks bro and hey have an awesome day man. Thanks again for the support. Also it is really cool gathering like minded folks that know something is out there. The Big Mamma Telescope is gonna find Nasa’s Big Mamma Scope lol

  1. Excellent photo’s Bruce, certainly gives you a different view of these Celestial bodies, in the sun thermal image number 02 is very interesting indeed, the different length spikes from corona, amazing capture… Also thanks for the information in the foot notes too bro…. 🙂

    1. Thanks bro been so busy here but have been on the sun man ain’t seen nuttin for days up there. I could just see Nasa the next morning looking at my youtube video ya right . I think I have reached the post down the street that’s about it loll. By the time my website gets to Nasa’s eyes I will have already exposed a good part of our galaxy. hehe Brother a new way of viewing the surface. Watch next vid man if ya want to be blown away. Your favorite city Bro. YES! This time how about a view of sinus Iridum that again probably won’t shock the pants off the World’s waist but I am in awe. lol Video will be up in 15 minutes and I will come back in an hour to answer all the comments. Good Morning man HEY been days not been in my email bro will get there today lol. Well the Thermal Imaging is part of what I researched and I happy to be doing it with my own material.
