Having seen Yang Yongliang’s incredible photographic series titled The Moonlight, I was looking through his site when I noticed an installation piece with the same name. The Moonlight is an oil painting on acrylic light film that is placed over a light box, which is then placed in a water pool that has a small fan beside it. In the light the piece looks rather mundane, but when darkness fills the room, the moon is illuminated and the fans rotation creates a beautiful ripple over the water that reflects the magnificent moon.
What Makes Up the Moon In 1992, the Jupiter-bound Galileo spacecraft made a pass by our planet’s closest companion, the moon. This mosaic of 53 images shows the different composition of rocks on the moon’s surface. Blue and orange colors represent lava flows, bright pink areas are highlands, and light blue colors indicate recent impact material with the youngest craters showing blue rays extending away from them.
Visible - A mosaic of images taken by the Clementinemission. This is a black-and-white version of what you would seeif you were in orbit around the moon. This composite imagery was prepared by the USGS.
