Spot this heavenly body

When i saw these image of mercury that were posted on the net i thought that these were those of moon.

But on further investigation found that these were those of mercury which wre relayed back to earth by a car-sized spacecraft that zipped past Mercury in a Monday flyby and it had relayed more than 1,200 new images and other data back to eager scientists on Earth.
