Pack of 2 amazing Moon photographs.
Full Moon by Bartosz Wojczyński
When viewed with the naked eye, the moon appears to be a colorless object. It turns out, however, that with the use of specialized photographic techniques, we are able to “extract” a lot of color details from the surface of our satellite.
The picture was taken with a 2.4 meter focal length telescope. The image was recorded with a dedicated monochrome camera for astrophotography equipped with red and blue filters. By increasing the differences between the color channels of the image many times over, we get an image that clearly shows very subtle differences in the color of the Moon’s surface. Orange areas show more iron oxides, while blue areas show titanium oxides.
Astronaut John W. Young, commander of the Apollo 16 lunar landing mission, leaps from the lunar surface as he salutes the United States flag at the Descartes landing site during the first Apollo 16 extravehicular activity (EVA). Astronaut Charles M. Duke Jr., lunar module pilot, took this picture.
The Lunar Module (LM) “Orion” is on the left. The Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) is parked beside the LM. The object behind Young (in the shade of the LM) is the Far Ultraviolet Camera/Spectrograph (FUC/S). Stone Mountain dominates the background in this lunar scene. While astronauts Young and Duke descended in the LM to explore the Descartes highlands landing site on the moon, astronaut Thomas K. Mattingly II, command module pilot, remained with the Command and Service Modules (CSM) “Casper” in lunar orbit.
