Everyone wishes they could go to the moon, at one point or another. This is definitely not the way to do it, though. NASA launched the LADEE spacecraft, bound for the moon, from Wallops Island, Va. on Friday (September 6), and now one little frog has joined the photobomb hall of fame.
The animal can be seen silhouetted in the smoke coming from the rocket. NASA officials confirm the photo is very real and that it's definitely a frog pictured, Space.com reports. There is one thing they don't know, as the image description reads, "The condition of the frog, however, is uncertain."
It's not entirely surprising something like this would happen. That particular NASA facility happens to be next to the Wallops Island National Wildlife Refuge. Outside of the weird frog photo, everything else about the launch went as perfect as can be. The probe now begins it's journey to the moon, which will take a month.
