Here are a few new simulations performed by Phil Oakley.
This is a simultation of the Earth-Sun system, viewed edge-on. The star is in the center, blocked out by the New Worlds starshade. The glow around the edges of the star is the exo-zodiacal dust of the inner solar system. The Earth can be seen orbiting orbiting the Sun, in this year-long simulation. The Earth appears a "pale blue," due to the oceans. As the Earth orbits the Sun, at certain times it adds to the brightness of the exo-zodiacal dust. The other object in the simulation that begins on the left and reappears "under" the Sun is actually a comet!
New Worlds Five Day Simulation
This simulation illustrates the changing reflectance of the Earth as the Earth rotates. Africa, due to the Sahara desert, is very bright, while the Pacific Ocean results in a drop in reflectance.
