Unexpected Changes in Earth's Climate Observed on Moon's Dark Side http://www.njit.edu/news/2004/2004-072.php http://www.njit.edu/news/2004/2004-072.phpThu, 27 May 2004 00:00:00 -0400 Despite what you might have read lately in the news about earth dimming, researchers at NJIT's Big Bear Observatory in California have uncovered evidence to the contrary. Their findings, to be reported in the May 28 issue of Science, suggest that earth is brightening. The research combines observations of the ghostly glow of light reflected from earth onto the dark side of the moon, known as earthshine, with NASA cloud data from satellites. The scientists suggest that observing earthshine offers a simple method for monitoring climate change and variations in cloud cover.
