Repeatedly imaging anthropogenic targets on the Moon is an LROC team priority. As each image comes down we carefully search for the hardware (or impact crater). If the target is not in the image we try again next month, imaging on either side of the first observation. Additionally, we re-image targets once they are found to enable more precise estimates of their latitude and longitude coordinates, and provide more information concerning local morphology and albedo.Read more
