MOON MOSAIC — A gorgeous image of the Moon from Noel Carboni via NASA: “No single exposure can easily capture faint stars along with the subtle colors of the Moon. But this dramatic composite view highlights both. The mosaic digitally stitches together fifteen carefully exposed high resolution images of a bright, gibbous Moon and a representative background star field. The fascinating color differences along the lunar surface are real, though highly exaggerated, corresponding to regions with different chemical compositions.” (NASA)
Keith Haring, famous for his playful, street-inspired patterns and figures, died from complications related to AIDS in 1990, at age 31. This painting, “Unfinished Painting,” was painted in 1989, and is a self-portrait. Haring knew that he would never have the time to complete all the work that he wanted to do.
