The Moon - Resources for Finding High-Res Stills
Many resources exist to offer NASA's images for public access. To aid in finding some of these resources, this page gives an example image, description, and link to a few of the best.
Producers interested in getting more of the film footage or stills from the Apollo missions may also contact Media Services at Johnson Space Center by calling (281) 483-4231.
Apollo Image Archive (from Arizona State University)
To allow full access to the original flight imagery for both researchers and the general public, Johnson Space Center and Arizona Stat University's Space Exploration Resources are scanning and creating an online digital archive of all the original Apollo flight films. Through this online interface, users may browse through the archive and download any of the images.
Lunar Orbiter Photo Gallery
The Lunar Orbiter Photo Gallery is an extensive collection of over 2,600 high and moderate resolution photographs produced by all five of the Lunar Orbiter missions. These photographs were taken in 1966-1967 to survey possible lunar landing sites and provide baseline imagery for geologic analysis of the lunar surface.
Apollo Image Gallery
The Project Apollo Archive serves as an online reference source and repository of digital images pertaining to the historic manned lunar landing program.
The Apollo Lunar Surface Journal
The Apollo Lunar Surface Journal is a record of the lunar surface operations conducted by the six pairs of astronauts who landed on the Moon from 1969 through 1972. The journal is intended as a resource for anyone wanting to know what happened during the missions and why. It contains quick access to high-res scans of mission photos and low-res versions of films from the mission.
Apollo Surface Panoramas
Apollo Surface Panoramas is a digital library of photographic panoramas that the Apollo astronauts took while exploring the Moon's surface. These images provide a spectacular boots-on-the-ground view of the lunar landscape.
NASA Images is a service of Internet Archive (www.archive.org), a non-profit library, to offer public access to NASA's images, videos, and audio collections. NASA Images is constantly growing with the addition of current media from NASA as well as newly digitized media from the archives of the NASA Centers.
