A Tour of the Moon

25 03 2012


More video goodness! From NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center and the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) comes “A Tour of the Moon.” As described by Goddard Multimedia:

“‘Tour of the Moon’ takes viewers to several interesting locations on the moon. Tour stops included in this breathtaking journey across the moon’s surface are: Orientale Basin, Shackleton crater, South Pole-Aitken Basin, Tycho crater, Aristarchus Plateau, Mare Serenitatis, Compton-Belkovich volcano, Jackson crater and Tsiolkovsky crater. The fully narrated video, as well as clips from each of the stops on the tour, are available to everyone in formats viewable on virtually any device.”

Although there are many fantastic scenes in this video, my favorite is the section showing the close-up views of the Apollo 17 landing site. Sweet.
