A ring around the moon-Pirate Movie?

Dracula, definitely.


A Rabbit making bean cakes...?
(Don't worry, it will be significant to topic later. By the way does anyone happen to know what this item was meant to do? I've a suspicion but that's all.)

For those who asked if I had the whole thing....

And from Ben Cacace, -Nice image of the Moon! The brightest spot at the top of the image is the crater Aristarchus. Below & to the right of A. are 2 light patches side-by-side - the right is Copernicus and the left one is Kepler.

(I've greedily asked him for more lunar topography. D.B.)

Can you still see the image of the "Man in the Moon? Try it.

If you turn your head sideways-ish and look, you may be able to see "the Rabbit making bean cakes" which is what you would see instead of the Man in the Moon, if you grew up on Okinawa.

Many thanks to Robert for his followup sightings to our Saturday Divine Hawk notes.

I was going to say a wax seal, but judging by the books behind it, it's too big. A paperweight?

I turned my head sideway-ish and think I saw the rabbit in the moon making bean cakes. Then again, I may just be going moon crazy.

Anon, I think you're right. It is likely too large for a seal to imprint wax, but perhaps it is a mold to imprint bean cakes for special moon parties?
