If your space-loving friends disappear for the next few days, it's a safe bet that they're losing themselves in the thousands of original Apollo mission photos that have been uploaded to Flickr over the past few days.

Many of the photos have been seen before in some form or another, but this is the first time that the unprocessed, high-resolution version of NASA's most iconic lunar mission photography has been presented in one exhaustive collection.

Kipp Teague, a Virginia-based NASA enthusiast who spearheaded the project, originally started curating NASA's content in 1999, when he launched the Project Apollo Archive. The website serves "as an online reference source and repository of digital images pertaining to the historic manned lunar landing program."

Teague's website, however, featured NASA-processed versions of the mission photographs, which were color-corrected and adjusted for brightness.

Repeated requests for unprocessed versions of the mission photographs recently led Teague to create the Project Apollo Archive on Flickr, a mind-blowing collection of thousands of lunar mission photos, all organized by the individual film reel on which they were taken.

Check out some of our favorite shots from the archive, which is still expanding by the day:
