Scope and Content

Paint on paper, 60 x 100cm, by Ernest Lurman of N.Z., he writes: "Experiment carried out...using a small point source of light and projecting it on to a polished brass ball 6'' diameter. Conclusion: the pictures seen of planets are not the true image but the projection of a very small area with the background shape assisting in the resultant picture. Photos by Mariner should prove this". May 1967.
