Photography : Astronomy : Almost Full

I'm showing off how much I love my camera, I know, but I love it! This is the clearest photo I've taken of a Full Moon. The dark spots (which look like a face or rabbit to different people) resolve themselves to be ancient lunar lava plains, where massive impacts billions of years ago made darker lunar mantle material to flow on the surface. The largest craters, like Tycho on the Southern part of the Moon, show details like pale lines streaking out of them, where material was thrown far from the crater by the power of the impact.
