Lunar Sandwich

Nestled between those clouds is our tiny Moon.

At least it looks tiny.

I was surprised to learn that the Moon is actually one forth the diamater of the Earth, which seems pretty big. But it is only 1/80th of the mass of our home planet, so I guess it is small.

Regardless of it's size, it looks pretty lonely out there.
