Caption

The Moon. Computer composite image of surface details on the Moon. The Moon image was taken by the crew of Apollo 13. The Sun is seen at top right. Although observers on Earth only ever see one side of the Moon, all of its surface is exposed to sunlight during its rotation and orbit of the Earth. The surface of the Moon is heavily pockmarked with craters from impacts with small bodies in the early years of the Solar System.
