This dude took thousands of pictures of the moon and created a 9000 pixel wide incredibly beautiful composite. https://www.reddit.com/r/space/comments/arer0k/i_took_nearly_50000_images_of_the_night_sky_to/
And yes this IS your new wallpaper. Don’t argue. https://twitter.com/breakthesystem/status/1097417542015086593
@breakthesystem it is indeed. Thanks for the link!
@toni I’ve heard reports that the download links are all dead. I’ll try to rehost it later
@breakthesystem Just wow.
@breakthesystem c'est impressionnant
@breakthesystem Whoooaaaaa, man. That's spec-fucking-tacular.
Almost looks like a matte shot from an old 1950s sci-fi flick.
Man, that's sweet.
@breakthesystem Do you know this guy personally? I really do think he should submit this to Astronomy Picture Of The Day. That's just friggin' amazing.
@flugennock I don't, but maybe he should, yes.
@breakthesystem it's a little odd how it took so long for someone on the thread to set up a torrent for the image.
At nearly 300MB the thing is a prime candidate for decentralized hosting.
@breakthesystem i wanna hug it
That’s no moon ... !

A waxing crescent moon, just before the first quarter, pictured with the illuminated side upwards. The craters near the transition from lit to unlit are clearly visible, numerous, and distinct. The varying coloration of the lunar surface is also quite clear, on both the lit and unlit sides. There is a glow from around the illuminated half, and stars are clear points in the background.
