86 viral images that are actually fake

posted by Jason Kottke   Dec 31, 2014

You’ve probably seen many of these images pop up on FB and Twitter this year. And they are amazing! But actually totally fake!

Fake Eclipse Photo

No, this isn’t a solar eclipse as seen from the International Space Station.

Space photo researcher @FakeAstropix keeps debunking this one, but it keeps popping up in every corner of the internet. Which is why it’s earned our top spot today. It’s actually a rendering from DeviantArt user A4size-ska. Beautiful, but totally fake.

Does “even if it’s fake it’s real” apply here? (via @john_overholt)
