SPACE: NASA’s Stunning Moon Photo Will Make You Swoon

Moon - NASA

The moon is pretty enough here from Earth, but it’s even more stunning up close, as this new photograph from NASA reminds us.

The image was captured on Nov. 3 by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, which has been circling the moon since 2009. While the crater itself is not quite so young, it’s still pretty fresh — it formed less than 100 million years ago, the spacecraft’s camera team said.

“Look closely at this crater. Some might say they see a hole in the ground,” representatives of Arizona State University, which runs the three cameras on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, wrote in a statement released with the image. “Try to see it, however, as [Neil] Armstrong saw the Moon” — with “a stark beauty all its own,” as the astronaut said during his historic moment in 1969.
