Bigger picture


The Man in the Moon is an imaginary figure resembling a human face, head or body, that observers from some cultural backgrounds typically perceive in the bright disc of the full moon. The figure is composed of the dark areas (the lunar maria, or "seas") and lighter highlands of the lunar surface. edit: smiley is added to ensure nobody is supposed to take this as if there actually is a man in the moon... :)
