LROC (Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera), which is aboard the lunar satellite LRO (Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter), is currently collecting data and returning an immense wealth of information in the form of images of the Moon. Below you will find our major resources of released images and data from LROC:
You can zoom in/out and pan around the image, download the raw image file, and learn more about the image.
Quick Map includes overlays of lunar feature names, locations of our featured images, a WAC basemap, WAC topography, NACs with Sun angles to enhance surface features and more. Check back often as the NAC coverage increases and more datasets are added.
LROC Featured Sites present NAC images to give an up-close view with informational overlays that highlight significant features of each site. The flip book format allows you to travel through multiple images of a given site, arranged in time-of-lunar-day sequence. It's surprising to see the difference the angle of the Sun can make on what is visible.
New sites will continue to be added so check back often.
You can rotate the Moon, zoom down to the Moon's surface, deploy exciting image overlays, and much more!
