A frog was caught on camera during the launch of NASA's Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer spacecraft at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport in Wallops Island, Va., on Friday.

Jeremy Eggers, a spokesman for the facility, confirmed the veracity of the image of the airborne frog captured by NASA’s remote cameras.

"The photo team confirms the frog is real and was captured in a single frame by one of the remote cameras used to photograph the launch," NASA said. "The condition of the frog, however, is uncertain."

Heh considering how high it is and what's roaring right next to it, I don't think it'll be a big mystery.. splat and/or vaporized. Crazy place for a frog to be though.

Lyrical parody from Burrito Justice

Ground Control to Major Frog

Commencing countdown engines on

WTF are you doing in the pond

Check ignition and may frog’s love be with you....

This is Major Frog to Ground Control

I thought I had a few seconds more

And I’m floating in a most peculiar way

And the pond looks very different today

Can you hear me Major Frog

Can you hear me Major Frog

Can you hear me Major Frog

You mentioned the frog legs that reminded me of a comic drawing of frog legs joke from about 30 years ago.

 

The drawing was about the frogs and their legs:

 

The people were sitting at the tables at the restaurant... that they were eating their frog legs...

 

So the frogs came out through the kitchen saloon doors with their crutches, wheelchairs because their legs were cut off for the dinner..

 

the people stared at them with their eyes open wide.. like shock.
