man in the moon


man in the moon
   Also known as hare in the Moon and lady in the Moon. All three terms are used to denote a "cognitive illusion consisting of a figure which can be discerned in the configuration of darker and lighter areas of the full Moon. Reportedly, familiarity with this illusion may be helpful in deciding whether a picture of the full Moon was taken while the photographer was looking eastward or westward.
