RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

As NASA sent a rocket to the moon, a frog was also launched into a much smaller orbit.

The launch of the LADEE spacecraft from the Wallops Flight Facility was watched around the world, including a number of cameras. However, it's an image from one of NASA's still camera that is getting attention days later.

The picture shows a frog in mid-air as the rocket lifts off. NASA's photo team confirms the authenticity of the photo, but says "the condition of the frog, however, is uncertain."
