The moon in technicolor

via Anthology Magazine

These may look like modern art, but they are actually maps of the moon made by the US Geological Survey. The patchwork style, bold colors make them very striking and avant garde looking. The whole survey can be viewed HERE. The pictures above are of the north and south sides of the moon.

Above: The side of the moon nearest us. Below: Two close up shots of the dark side of the moon that we never get to see. Enjoy!
