The Kiss of Fire

This luscious closeup of lips is the flamboyant false coloration of a small volcanic vent on the western limb of the Moon. The Clementine image below shows the dark ring of volcanic ash - called Mare Pacificus by the Soviets who discovered it - that erupted from the vent, just visible in the middle. In this high resolution Kaguya Multi-Spectral Imager view the blue appears to represent freshly exposed surfaces (perhaps exposed by material sliding down slopes) that have not had time to be darkened by radiation.
