Clearest pictures of the moon ever released

Check out this image of the moon. It was created from pictures taken from the lunar reconnaissance orbiter. It’s actually 1,300 photos put together and it is zoomable! Awesome!

Here is the link to go and play around with the zoom capability. Maybe you can find that darn flag we left behind!

  1. That is an amazing picture. The zoom works pretty good as well. I could have sworn I saw a couple of bodies laying in that big crater. LOL!

  2. I know, I kept looking for some of the junk we’ve left behind like a lunar rover or something. I wish they had something to give you some scale as to just how close you’re actually looking.
