Aurora Borealis by Frederic Edwin Church.

During the late 1850s and early 1860s Church was at the height of his powers, painting large-scale exhibition pieces, such as Twilight in the Wilderness (1860; Cleveland, OH, Mus. A.), The Icebergs (1861; Dallas, TX, Mus. A.), Cotopaxi (1862; Detroit, MI, Inst. A.) and Aurora Borealis (1865; Washington, DC, N. Mus. of Amer. A.). He continued to paint major works in the years immediately after the Civil War but with an increasing emphasis on visionary atmospheric effects reminiscent of J. M. W. Turner, as in Rainy Season in the Tropics (1866; San Francisco, CA, de Young Mem. Mus.), Niagara Falls, from the American Side (1867; Edinburgh, N.G.) and the Vale of St Thomas, Jamaica (1867; Hartford, CT, Wadsworth Atheneum).

Wait I’m kind of confused?

Do you see the face in the first gif?

just a little heartache: Departing the Moon, photographed by Apollo 17, December 1972.
Showing the terminator on the lunar farside. The peaked crater at left is Tsiolkovskiy, again.
No date and time information attached to these images, but presumably just after escape from lunar orbit at midnight on the 16th.
