  1. Majora’s Mask, anyone?


  2. Cool Mad Moon Rock. Are these sattelites capable of seeing man made objects like the vehicles the Apollo Missions supposedly left there?

    Does anyone else see the clownish face to the side of the creepy face? It is made up of several smaller stones and, perhaps, shadows.


  4. It’s not really a “rock,” more like a tower, crumbling from mass wasting. The top of that formation is easily 50 meters across.

    How can anyone not be aware that LRO/s LROC cameras have imaged all six of the Apollo expeditions? The vehicle has been in lunar orbit nearly three years now, and that’s no small thing. No man made object has managed to stay in lunar orbit that long before.


  5. Whatever it is, it’s damn interesting….from surprised suns to mad moon rocks, very cool!
