High definition video and photos of the moon

Beautiful stark photos of the moon taken by the Japanese KAGUYA lunar explorer. Guess what, no domes or alien ruins.

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and public broadcaster NHK have succeeded in capturing the world’s first high-definition video of the moon taken from lunar orbit. The 8x time-lapse video was shot using an HDTV camera aboard the KAGUYA lunar explorer, a.k.a. SELENE (SELenological and ENgineering Explorer), while in orbit 100 kilometers (62 miles) above the lunar surface.

Here is a video of the the moon in High definition

This still was taken from the first part of the video, which was shot on the west side of the Ocean of Storms as KAGUYA moved from south to north. The dark area on the right side of the screen is the “ocean,” and the bright area on the left is called the “highland.”
