A frog photobomb was not intentional but one little amphibian totally stole the show during NASA's recent rocket launch. On Sept. 12, The Inquisitr reported that a frog managed to get in a photo that was snapped during the LADEE spacecraft's moon-launch. The frog can be clearly seen in a plume of smoke in what's being called one of the strangest photobombs of all time.
"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… The condition of the frog, however, is uncertain," NASA explained.
The frog photobomb is making its way around the internet today. While some people initially thought that the photo was doctored, NASA's confirmation of the strange sight proves that this is the real deal. It appears as though the frog was on the rocket or on the surrounding scaffolding when it was thrown into the air and caught by the camera in just the right position.
According to the report, there is an abundance of frogs in the area because the Wallops Island National Wildlife Refuge sits adjacent to NASA’s Wallops facility. The small creature was both in the wrong and right place at the wrong and right time.
The frog photobomb can be seen in the video above.
