Unreal Tycho Pic

Hey Space Placers!

Followers of my blog know that I am a "lunatic" - that is crazy for all things Moon related. Well, I gotta' tell you this pic of the central peaks of the bright rayed crater Tycho is just UNREAL! Taken by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) it shows sunrise of the peaks in a way never seen before. Can you imagine being on the top peaks - the view you would see? In the original view you will see a large white boulder at the summit, cracks in the melted surface that cooled, all kinds of detail. Oh how I would love to be there.
