VIRAL PHOTOS THAT WERE FAKE
Added on: 2nd Mar 2016
THIS EARLY COLOUR PHOTOGRAPH SHOWS CIVIL
WAR SOLDIERS LEANING AGAINST A TANK
What’s next? George Washington in the cockpit of a F-16? Once
again, this picture actually managed to fool some reputable
history related twitter accounts.
THIS IS WHAT AN ECLIPSE LOOKS LIKE FROM SPACE
Well, it may be, but this photo is actually just a rendering created
by Deviant art user A4size-ska.
THIS IS WHAT INDIA LOOKS LIKE FROM SPACE ON
Actually, this is a false colour composite taken of India over the
course of a decade that shows how light distribution changed
over time. Still pretty cool though!
THIS IS WHAT A KOALA LOOKS LIKE WHEN IT IS WET
Sort of. The jaw is actually that of a dog though.
STEVEN SEAGAL GIVES PUTIN BUNNY EARS!
Nope, didn’t happen. The fingers were just photoshopped in.
THIS PILOT IS TAKING A SELFIE MID-FLIGHT
Yeah right. There’s more than one thing wrong with this photo but
the bottom line is that this has never happened.
THIS IS WHAT LOS ANGELES LOOKED LIKE DURING
THE BLACKOUT IN 1994
This photo is actually a composite made by photographer Thierry
Cohen who makes such photos of various cities showing what the
night sky might look like if all the lights went out. Although there
were more stars visible during the blackout it was nothing like this.
The stories were most likely fuelled by rumours that some people
called 9-1-1 to report strange lights in the sky. Apparently
somebody thinks Angelinos need to get out more!
THIS IS WHAT THE SUPER MOON LOOKS LIKE
OVER RIO DE JANEIRO
Once again, the moon was just pasted in. And once again,
people actually fell for it.
