The colourful moon image is by Neil Carboni http://ncarboni.home.att.net/Astrophotography.html
(I saw it the other day on the venerable APOD, here: http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap060907.html)

I hadn't really thought, until now, about how odd it is that the moon seems to be a completely monochrome world. What the picture shows is, in fact, the slight variations in colour exaggerated.

The forked Volkswagen is a part of the Royal Deluxe (google it) performance in Iceland.
