The new James Webb Space Telescope has shown us all the astonishing, detailed and awe-inspiring images from the infinitely expanding universes, a time-traveling telescope that has rearranged assumptions about physics, astronomy, and the origins of what we call space. Near the Earth, there has always been a celestial sphere with us, lest we forget: the Moon. As we wonder and ponder the implications of new images from millions of light years away, astrophotographers Andrew McCarthy and Connor Mathern, also a planetary scientist, have given us a new, detailed look at the composition of the moon.
From Arizona Public Media:
McCarthy specializes in detailed photos, taking tens of thousands of photos to capture geographical features on the moon’s surface while Matherne prefers to take deep space photos that specialize in colour.
Combining their talents in more than 200,000 photos taken over two years, the detail is astounding, the images revealing to all of us, without a telescope at home, this nearby celestial wonder. Check out McCarthy Twitter feed.
