A seriously amazing shot of the Moon

I don't usually post pictures of the whole Moon, because even though they can be really nice they're pretty common on the web. But every now and again one comes along that, when you click it, you stare at slack-jawed in amazement.

This is one of those times. What you see below is a tiny, tiny thumbnail of a ginormous 3900 x 4600 pixel image you have to see to believe. It's 18 megapixels of awesomeness.
