Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera

Giordano Bruno Crater, Scale: 1:24,000

Description:

This relief model of the crater was derived from 80 LROC Narrow Angle Camera images taken from different angles, so scientists could accurately determine the height and proportion of the crater features. The topographic model’s small pixel scale (about 5 meters or 16 feet) captures even subtle features of the crater. The model was carved from a single large block of material and airbrushed to accurately depict the brightness of features. Model courtesy of NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University/Pflug GmbH
