As you scroll through images of the moon captured by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC), you may do a double take. Universe Today reports how Yoda has been spotted on the moon, or at least a shadow eerily similar to the great Star Wars character. The photo was released this week by NASA’s LROC team and the shadow is believed to stem from a peak in the Icarus crater.
