Close-up of a Moon crater

tycho_cpeak_oblique.jpg

Tycho is a crater on the moon that has a little "island" peak in its center. If you're feeling immature, it looks a bit like a breast. With that analogy in mind, what you're looking at here is a close-up of the nipple—the very tip-top of Tycho's central peak. The photo was taken by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.
