False-colour telescope photograph of the full moon, showing bright rayed meteor impact craters and dark "seas" or maria. The bright crater at the bottom is Tycho. The colour has been added by a photographic technique called isophote mapping, which assigns colours to different levels of grey in the black-and-white original.
