This is beyond awesome. Use your mouse wheel or the + and – buttons on this incredible interactive view of the Moon to zoom in; use your mouse to let the image take you where you want to go. Click on the button in the lower right to go full screen and you’ll feel like you are in lunar orbit.

If only it was a cool as you’re saying.
That was also my reaction. Nice, but not all that special. Now one made from a mosaic of LRO images, THAT would be cool!
Hi Nancy , I was curious that why the moon craters are shining at some places ?
Can this be done with the rest of the moon as well ?
At the Moon’s 12:20 position along the edge, and say 1000 kilometers toward the Moon’s center, located just above the white crater, there appears to be some sort of raised plateau. Curious to find out what that item is.
Zoom.it is a great way to display high-res images where you want the user to be able to also view details. I use it on most of the newer astro-images on my webpage. The only problem that it has is that the default max zoom is 200% of original and the imager may not want to artificially magnify (beyond the native size). It is also free and very easy to use.
Eh? Pretty slick, but nothing really spectacular.
Very interesting on the iPad tablet: it doesn’t really work well. I’ll be looking at the code.and wondering how to make tablets work with it.
I shoot AVIs for mosaic tonigh, and it’s a lot of work – a lot of AVIs needed to cover the whole visible Moon on high resolution.
there are bit of anomalies in that pic. very nice
While a nice image, it’s not really “insane” resolution – at a rough estimate, it seems to be about 20-30 megapixel actual resolution. Not bad, but I’ve seen quite a few go significantly higher – including my own personal best:
