The Japanese space agency has published an amazing animation made from data from their Kaguya/Selene probe. This is a virtual tour through moons Tycho crater (named after astronomer Tycho Brahe, 1546 – 1601 [Wikipedia]). Phil Plait as badastronomy.com explains a bit about Tychos features (and links to the stunning lunar picture of the day, a picture of Tychos central mountain). Note that these are not actual movies/pictures, but are constructed from the data of Selenes instruments.
With that I wish you a happy weekend, I will attend a family festivity over the weeekend and will be offline ’till sunday.
