Unbeknownst to us when we took this image of the 12 day old moon, we captured a crater named after one of the most well-known philosophers of all time. Also a result of our first endeavor with the CCD camera on October 23, 1996, this image was taken with a blue filter at 0.01 seconds. As we did not yet know, (or maybe understand), why we would have wanted to take green and red filtered images, our unintended tribute to a great philosopher remains black and white.
