Frog in the air - level 3
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, that's a frog 'photobombing' a recent rocket launch in America.
And no, it's not a joke and NASA confirms this snap is actually a genuine image. The frog appears to have been thrown into the air during the takeoff of a LADEE spacecraft from Virginia last weekend.
It's thought the frog may have been resting in a water pool on the launch pad. A spokesperson for NASA says the photo team has confirmed the frog is real and was captured in a single frame by one of the remote cameras. However, they said the condition of the frog is uncertain. But we're being optimistic and we reckon he’s happy orbiting around the earth.
Difficult words: photobomb (be unexpectedly in a photo), genuine (real), spacecraft (vehicle that is able to travel in space), spokesperson (someone who communicates with media on behalf of a company), remote (distant), reckon (think), orbit (move around something).
