    ako din di pa ko nakarating sa moon, pero natapakan ko na great wall of china. it is about 10 meters wide at its widest (at the base) and about 6 meters wide at the top. so from near earth orbit it will probably appear as a thin line. but from the moon, naaaah!

    just to tickle your imagination further:

    The Biggest Pyramid of Egypt is also claimed to be visible on the naked eye from the moon but not because of its large structure. But because the tip of the pyramid is emitting a powerful type of unknown light energy that is invisible to local earth eyes. It is theorized that if ever nasa Mars or Moon ikaw, you can see a white star in the middle of the earth. (Egypt is near the equator). To prove that there is energy being emitted daw, try to fly a fighter jet on top of the great pyramid, mag-crash daw yun jet.

    now regarding the Wall of China, it might be visible because of the reflection of the Sun, kasi our naked eyes naman respond to light energy lang (just like digicams hehehe). but kudos to the people who constructed the great wall, kasi pano nila nalaman yun angles to make a good reflection, not to mention, the choice of bldg. materials.
    Digicams are not limited to the visible spectrum. Try taking a picture of your TV remote control, you'll see the IR LED lighting up

    I agree with NASA... errh... Mazda... even if, technically, it is visible, it is not visible to the NAKED eye. You cannot SEE features on the moon smaller than a few thousand miles WITHOUT a telescope, what more the Great Wall?

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...
