This colourful image of a man in a red and yellow balloon, with a telescope, examining the moon, originally accompanied Edward Lear's delightful nonsense poem: There was an Old Man of the Hague, whose ideas were excessively vague;/ He built a balloon, to examine the moon,/ That deluded Old Man of the Hague. The image is from Lear's A Book of Nonsense (1812-1888).
