That frog-shaped blotch you see in the smoke kicked up by the launch of the LADEE spacecraft at the Wallops/Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport last Friday is an actual frog.

This is a photo captured by one of NASA’s own cameras. You may be asking yourself, “How in the world would a frog find him- or herself in a position to be shot in the sky by a rocket launch?” Well, they’ve got a theory over at Universe Today.

The launchpad actually holds a protective — and noise-suppressing — pool of water that may look like a froggy paradise. That is, until the rocket ignites.
