As we can see in this snapshot from the live feed of the ISS (International Space Station) if you look at the “solar panels” on the right you see they are not a straight edge, they are curved. There are no curved solar panels like this.
Thus this is some of the most basic and blatant evidence that the alleged “curve” of the Earth is always presented to us improperly. They always use these wide angle lenses that distort straight lines.

Note: this is not to be used as “proof” that the Earth is flat or even to speculate such it is merely presented to show that what we see is not always reality even when it comes from the scientific community though it sure would be nice to see a genuine photograph of the clouds shown here from the vantage point of sea level to compare and verify if these two images were taken at the very same time as NASA has presented images of Earth as seen looking like a ball whereas it is clear the clouds used are copy and pasted digital imagery. It seems we actually cannot take photos of the Earth that far away from the ISS (if indeed it is up there) but only from space ships but if those images were authentically taken from such vehicles why would there ever be evidence of cut and paste?
In another example of how wide angle lenses distort our perception, let’s look at a frame from a documentary movie about space ship Voyager. The image is snapped from the floor, looking up at the ceiling of where the craft was built with engineers narrating what happened back in the 1970’s as they were planning the project. Notice the curves. The ceiling is square and flat, but it looks round here! Look closely, the center of it looks closer to you and the edges look farther away. This is exactly what is happening in all “actual photographs” of Earth. They make the Earth look round like this room’s ceiling but in reality it’s about as flat as this ceiling actually is.
Now compare the “straight edges” of the solar panels in the top photo to the “straight edges” of the beams and where the walls meet the ceiling in the photo below, and see how a wide angle lens makes flat things and straight lines all look curved. Go one step further and notice the solar panels on the space craft in the top photo there are two sections that as you follow the two curves, they are almost exactly the same as the “curve” of the Earth. In reality, as seen without a wide angle lens, the Earth appears FLAT.
The space station where these are supposed to be coming from is said to be 270 miles about Earth in low Earth orbit.
We cannot see how round the Earth is (or is not) at this height but we PERCEIVE it to be as round as we are shown by these photos from this height because all we ever see is wide angle shots that add this unnatural curve to it.
Here is an image of the entire station (or representation of it) where you can see these straight edge solar panels and the other sections that jut out in the top photo. Note this image is described as follows: The International Space Station is featured in this image photographed by an STS-132 crew member on board the Space Shuttle Atlantis after the station and shuttle began their post-undocking relative separation. Undocking of the two spacecraft occurred at 10:22 CDT on 23 May 2010, ending a seven-day stay that saw the addition of a new station module, Rassvet, replacement of batteries and resupply of the orbiting outpost.
Notice the difference in the amount of curve and that there is not a single body of land anywhere to be seen. This appears to have been captured by a normal lens. If this is a real photo of the space station this would better indicate the actual curvature of the Earth as seen from this height of 270 miles. This image comes from NASA and is in the public domain on Earth and in the alien domain in space. Someday we will have to build walls in space as well.
Also note that this curvature COULD theoretically appear as such due to principles of refraction caused by the atmosphere (this would be another analysis).
The space station is located in the Thermosphere which is the uppermost section of Earth’s atmosphere.
It’s not really flying in space per se as we might imagine, it’s technically in our atmosphere like the clouds, but way above those as shown in the diagram below.

The space station astronaut named Alexander Gerst snapped a great image to show us here a comparison of what it looks like viewing a hurricane at sea when no wide angle lens is used. It shows a more accurate representation of what can be seen without using a wide angle lens “from space” from the International Space Station. Not much, although it does give us a great view of this storm we certainly do not see that curved Earth we so often see with satellite imagery.
