Moon of Earth
This color image of the Moon was taken by the Galileo spacecraft on its way to Jupiter. The image was taken on December 7, 1992 and shows several prominent features of the Moon's surface. The color has been enhanced to make subtle features stand out ans easier to see. The differences between the younger, smooth Mare and the older cratered areas is plainly visible.
