Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera

New Impacts – Multipanel


Repeat imaging of the lunar surface enables the LROC team to identify new craters that formed between the observations using temporal image pairs (before and after imaging). Since the start of the mission, over 200 new craters ranging between 1.5 meters and 43 meters have been discovered. This set of images shows three examples with the before image in the left column, the after image in the middle and a ratio of the two images in the right column to highlight the changes.
