APOD: Rotating Moon from LRO (2013 Sep 16) Credit: LRO, Arizona State Univ, NASA http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130916.html http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNUNB6CMnE8 Explanation: No one, presently, sees the Moon rotate like this. That's because the Earth's moon is tidally locked to the Earth, showing us only one side. Given modern digital technology, however, combined with many detailed images returned by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), a high resolution virtual Moon rotation movie has now been composed. The above time-lapse video starts with the standard Earth view of the Moon. Quickly, though, Mare Orientale, a large crater with a dark center that is difficult to see from the Earth, rotates into view just below the equator. From an entire lunar month condensed into 24 seconds, the video clearly shows that the Earth side of the Moon contains an abundance of dark lunar maria, while the lunar far side is dominated by bright lunar highlands. Two new missions are scheduled to begin exploring the Moon within the year, the first of which is NASA's Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE). LADEE, which launched just over a week ago, is scheduled to begin orbiting the Moon in October and will explore the thin and unusual atmosphere of the Moon. In a few months, the Chinese Chang'e 3 is scheduled to launch, a mission that includes a soft lander that will dispatch a robotic rover. http://lro.gsfc.nasa.gov/ http://lroc.sese.asu.edu/ http://www.nasa.gov/lro Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130916 #APOD
