This unique view of the moon has been created by using Wide Angle Camera (WAC) aboard NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO). LRO is a robotic mission that set out to map the Moon's surface and, after a year of exploration, was extended with a unique set of science objectives. LRO observations have enabled numerous groundbreaking discoveries, creating a new picture of the Moon as a dynamic and complex body. These developments have set up a scientific framework through which to challenge and improve our understanding of processes throughout the Solar System.
