@Gugg I stand corrected.

comment Which point on a diffuse reflecting plane is brightest to the viewer?
Your conclusion is correct. No matter where the observer is, the highest luminosity (that is the quantity closest to "perceived brightness") will be coming from the point on the plane closest to the point light source.

comment Why do prescription glasses that darken in sunlight fail to darken when the light travels through a car windshield?
Too bad people downvote without commenting. I still believe my answer touches on an important topic. If the car wouldn't have a windshield, but just a hole, the glasses would still hardly respond. Philip Gibbs also refers to this as "another important factor".

comment Distance away from earth to see it as a full disk
Which indeed proves that you would need very-wide-angle eyes/camera to see the full disc from ISS. I believe the first sight of earth like that, was from moon orbit: independent.co.uk/news/science/…

It takes a while before you come to your actual question: how come a stereoscopic photo from a Nintendo 3DS looks true to scale eventhough the distance between the two cameras isn't.

If you choose for no friction, then you cannot assume speed or acceleration to be equal for all parts.
