Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera

Farside WAC Mosaic


Farside mosaic is comprised of 1686 Wide Angle Camera images acquired between July 2010 and July 2012. Most of images were from a two-week period in June-July 2011. Like the nearside mosaic on the West wall of this gallery, the Sun remained low over the horizon during this period, which results in crisp shadows that emphasizes the local morphology and topography on the farside.
