  1. Hmmmm . . Image mixes a flattened representation of the USA with an image of a spherical body.
    Goes against credible cartographic precepts to juxtapose images thusly.
    Use the same projection to flatten the moon image then align the pics.
    THAT would “make me think” AND aid me in doing so rightly.

    But other than that- yeah -moon’s not so big,eh?

  2. Could be the Moon Terraformed? hmm

  3. I think this image very cool and my 7 year old son thinks so too…thanks for sharing this!
