Save 22% by ordering these moon maps together!
Here are two large, stunning, and accurate Moon maps that you’ll be proud to hang in your observatory or office. The U.S. Geological Survey created them in August 2015 from data returned by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, which NASA launched June 18, 2009.
The black-and-white map displays lunar features as they appear to the eye, and it makes a great companion if you’re planning to observe the Moon through a telescope. The color-coded Moon map shows differences in altitudes of lunar features, a range of some 12.5 miles. It combines more than 6 billion measurements from one of the instruments aboard the spacecraft — the Laser Altimeter. On both maps, the polar regions have a scale of 1:6,078,683, and the equatorial region has a scale of 1:10,000,000.
In this package you will receive both the image mosaic and topographic Moon maps.
Size of each map: 46" x 41"
