Rabbit in the Moon

Rabbit in the Moon

from 30.00

There are many myths of moon rabbits in Asian folklore. So much so during the Apollo 11 moon landing Houston joked about it:

“Houston: Among the large headlines concerning Apollo this morning, is one asking that you watch for a lovely girl with a big rabbit. An ancient legend says a beautiful Chinese girl called Chang-O has been living there for 4,000 years. It seems she was banished to the Moon because she stole the pill of immortality from her husband. You might also look for her companion, a large Chinese rabbit, who is easy to spot since he is always standing on his hind feet in the shade of a cinnamon tree. The name of the rabbit is not reported.

Michael Collins: Okay. We'll keep a close eye out for the bunny girl.”

Perhaps Apollo 11 missed this blue space bunny.
