    nothing TOO special - 400mm digital camera lens on max focal length, then 100% crop of the original gets you an image not too dicimilar to that

    Stunning mate.

    FACT ONE
    The Moon is the only surface in the Solar System (other than Earth) to have been stepped on by humans

    FACT TWO
    The foot prints on the moon will remain for millions of years.

    FACT THREE
    The Moon has no atmosphere. It is through atmosphere that light is dispersed (spread) and sound waves travel (light waves and sound waves bounce off tiny particles in an atmosphere). This means that no sound can be heard on the Moon. The sky is always black because light cannot be spread, unlike on Earth where light spreads to give the sky a blue colour and on Mars where it spreads through its thin atmosphere to give the sky a pinkish/reddish colour.


    FACT FOUR

    We only ever see one side of the Moon. This is because when it formed and its inner liquids went solid, most were pulled towards Earth, making it slightly egg-shaped, heavier on one side (the side that we can see) and therefore not able to spin freely. Instead, it spins with the Earth. As the opposite side of the Moon is never seen from Earth, it is often referred to as the "Dark Side of the Moon." This is despite the fact that it is actually exposed to the Sun for two weeks during each of the Moon's cycles.

    FACT FIVE
    Only 12 people have stepped on the surface of the Moon, spread over six missions between 1969 and 1972. All of these landings have been American. Those astronauts are Neil Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, Pete Conrad, Alan Bean, Alan Shepard, Edgar Mitchell, David Scott, James Irwin, John Young, Charles Duke Jr., Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt.

    FACT SIX
    The Moon is the fourth biggest moon in the Solar System (after Ganymede and Callisto of Jupiter, and Titan of Saturn). The Moon is also larger than the dwarf planets Pluto and Eris. It is the 14th largest known object in the Solar System (click here for a list of the Solar System objects by size)

    FACT SEVEN
    Buzz Aldrin's mother's maiden name is Moon!

    FACT EIGHT
    Selenophobia is the name given for the persistant and irrational fear of the Moon. Sufferers of this phobia have panic attacks, with symptoms including sweating, trembling and feeling faint, whenever seeing or thinking about the Moon. The attacks are often stronger when the Moon is bright or full
