Hubble Space Telescope Looks at the Moon to Prospect for Resources (Aristarchus Crater - gray)

This visualization starts with a view of the moon as seen from Earth using a USGS Apollo derived artist rendered texture (airbrushed). The camera then zooms into the Aristarchus Crater region. Simulated topography derived from Clementine data is used for relief and high resolution HST data is used for the area of interest. After investigating Aristarchus Crater, the camera then moves over to Schroter's Valley for a brief investigation.
This visualization is match rendered with id 3275 so that the color version can be dissolved in or out as needed.
Exposure Time: 2.5 minutes
Filters: F250W (250nm), F344N (344nm), F502N (502nm), F658N (658nm)

Datasets used in this visualization
HST (Collected with the ACS sensor)
Clementine (Collected with the HIRES sensor)
HST (Collected with the WFPC2 sensor)
Wide-Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) was installed in Dec 1993 and used to obtain high resolution images of astronomical objects. This camera was removed in the last servicing mission so it is no longer in service.

Clementine and HST Lunar Composite Texture (Collected with the HIRES and the Telescope sensor)
