I'll share a few pictures I've taken of Earth's nearest neighbor. Here's the full Moon last October.

The Moon's brightest crater, Aristarchus lies in shadow near the river-like channels where lava once flowed.

The crater Copernicus is one of the youngest big craters on the Moon.

This shot of a waxing half Moon captures a stark Ansel Adams feeling.

The place where Apollo 11's Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first people to set foot on another world is to the upper left of the bright little crater a little southwest of center. A pixel here is about the size of a large city block.

At the deepest point of this January's lunar eclipse, the Moon is orangey red in the color of all the sunrises and sunsets happening around Earth at that moment.
