Every day NASA posts a new astronomy-related picture to their site. I am going to bring them to you in case you forget.
Today’s installment is a little guessing game. One picture is of the bottom of a frying pan, the other is an actual shot of the moon. Can you guess which is which? Link to the answers and other quizzes available in the text below.
Explanation: Which is which? Of the two images shown above, one is a moon in our Solar System, while the other is the bottom of frying pan. We are not making this up — can you tell a pan from a planetoid? Think you got it? To find the answer click here. OK, but there are more! That’s right: you, your family, friends, neighbors, and local elected officials can all play “Moon or Frying Pan” with these other image pairs, too. As everyone knows, the fundamental underlying reason why moons and frying pans appear similar is — OK, we at APOD aren’t sure either. And if you’vebeenfooled, don’t fret — just remember that it’s OK because today is April Fool’s Day.
