Composite image by George Tarsoudis
In his 1952 book, The Planets, Harold Urey included a composite Moon photo made by carefully airbrushing together a first and last quarter lunar image. This was perhaps the mostly widely used lunar image of the 1950s and 60s and few people seemed to realize that the Moon didn’t actually look like that. Now George in Greece has made an even simpler composite image. Don’t look too closely, just enjoy!
