A photograph shared by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has taken the internet by surprise.

This image features Mercury, the smallest planet within our solar system. Taken by MESSENGER, the pioneering spacecraft to orbit Mercury, this picture has sparked conversations and excitement among online users.

NASA also posted a detailed caption along with the image to explain more about the planet.

“Slightly larger than Earth’s Moon, Mercury is the smallest planet in the solar system, and is the closest to the Sun at an average of 36 million miles (58 million km) away. While Mercury may be the smallest planet, it is also the speediest, travelling in its orbit at almost 29 miles (47 km) per second, making a year on Mercury just 88 Earth days,” the space agency wrote.
