Your Title Here

This fantastic Kaguya HDTV image is the perfect cover photo for a book about the Moon, just add your own title in the darkness of the sky. The Kaguya oblique view gives the perspective you would have looking out the window of your personal lunar orbiter. The crater-studded floor of Ptolemaeus passes under your orbiter and Alphonsus, with its narrow rilles, dark halo volcanic pits, and the famous non-erupting central peak, is coming next. Sigh. When will rides like this be available?
