One small misstep for frog, one giant leap for said frog.

NASA says a still camera on a sound trigger captured an intriguing photo of an airborne frog during the launch.

NASA's LADEE spacecraft lifted off late Friday night from Pad 0B at Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

NASA says the photo team confirmed the frog is real and was captured in a single frame by one of the remote cameras used to photograph the launch.

The condition of the frog, however, is uncertain.

We didn't pick the frog up in our photos of the launch, but you can check out that slideshow below.
