Psychedelic moon… contrib by Lori C.

The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter’s LOLA laser altimeter produced this color-coded image of elevations on the far side of the moon, which cannot be seen from Earth. The highest elevations, above 20,000 feet, are shown in red. The lowest elevations are shown in blue.




  1. I can’t see a thing– really. But I’m not surprised. It’s very hard to see the moon during the day… : )

I'm delighted to hear from you :) Merci, beaucoup to all who clicked LIKE...
