Worthy of a Lunar Picture of the Day, our friend Kaitlyn Hemingway took this photo of the full moon from AT&T Park during a Giants game. AT&T Park is home of the San Francisco Giants baseball team and is just 45 mins North of NLSI’s Central Office at NASA Ames Research Center.

It looks like the Moon is a baseball that was just shot out of the big coke bottle and is about to be “caught” in the big glove in the outfield! We thought it was pretty cool, and we hope you like it too.

If you have an inspiring Moon picture you would like to share, we’d love to see it– your photo credit could appear right here in the Inspiration Room!

  • Model Helps Search for Moon Dust Fountains

    NLSI’s DREAM team modelers help search for Moon dust fountains In exploration, sometimes you find more than what you’re looking for, including things that shouldn’t be there. As the Apollo 17 astronauts orbited over the night side of the moon, with the sun just beneath the horizon right before orbital “sunrise,” Eugene Cernan prepared to make observations of sunlight scattered by the sun’s thin outer atmosphere and interplanetary dust from comets and collisions between asteroids.

The largest impact feature on the Moon is not one of the prominent "seas" that face the Earth, but the huge SPA Basin on the farside.
