On July 19 1969 the Apollo 11 spacecraft entered lunar orbit. It was the fourth day of the mission and just one day before Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the surface in the lunar module Eagle and took the first steps on the Moon. This close-up photograph of the lunar surface taken by the Apollo 11 astronauts shows the large crater Theophilus located at the northwest edge of Mare Nectaris on the lunar nearside. Theophilus is about 60 statute miles in diameter. ⁣⁣

This scrambled galaxy as seen by @nasahubble resembles a flowering cherry blossom tree. The bright regions are actually stellar nurseries where new stars are blooming. Some pockets of gas rotate in the opposite direction to the rest of the galaxy suggesting that there has been a close encounter with another galaxy in the past. ⁣
