"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 says.
They say the condition of the frog, however, is uncertain.
The small car-sized Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) is a robotic mission that will orbit the moon to gather detailed information about the structure and composition of the thin lunar atmosphere.
