Caption: The Moon. Enhanced colour view of the Moon seen through a telescope during the waxing gibbous phase. The varied colours of the lunar surface indicate the various types of mineral deposits. The darker regions of the Maria ( seas ) are rich in titanium and iron oxides, and the blue hues reveal particularly titanium-rich areas. The Copernicus crater is the most prominent crater in the scene. It is 93 kilometres wide, with a distinctive ray system forming spokes hundreds of kilometres in length.
