video from Center for Lunar Science and Exploration
David Kring and colleagues at the Center for Lunar Science and Exploration have combined images from the LRO camera with the LOLA altimetry data to create a fly around of the Aristarchus Plateau, Tycho and Orientale. With music called Off the Beaten Track providing a contemplative Music from the Hearts of Space feel the video is meant to provide an inspirational view of the lunar surface. This is an attractive brief view of the Moon with appropriately wistful and spacey music that will be a great conclusion to any public talk about the Moon.
