The Internet Had A Photoshop Field Day With NASA's Unbelievable Photo

Will the real moon please stand up.

This week, NASA astronaut Rick Mastracchio posted to Twitter a magnificent photo that shows the moon passing between NOAA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory and Earth.

“Almost unbelievable that this is a real photo,” Mastracchio wrote.

The internet responded by having itself an absolute field day.

Some took to Twitter to debate the authenticity of the picture. Others decided to show the NASA astronaut exactly what “unbelievable” really looks like, photoshopping the original picture into oblivion.

From an orbiting hamburger to Donald Trump’s noggin, here’s a look at some of the clever ― and 100 percent fake ― memes that spun out of Mastracchio’s very real post.
