“[My daughter] Sophia still wants to fly to the moon. Since astronaut training is many years away, we decided to travel 2,600 miles from home to the place on Earth that feels similar to the moon’s surface. Her sister Clara joined her. Together they will explore many places in preparation for the final journey,” writes Your Shot photographer Juan Osorio. “This image was taken at Meteor Crater in Arizona, nearly a mile wide and deep enough to fit the Washington Monument. From the 1960s until today, NASA has used it to prepare astronauts for crater terrain.”
