Moon as Art Favorite Image


The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) has been in space for five years, and in those five years, it has continued to shape our view of the Moon. In honor of the fifth anniversary, the LRO project kicked off the Moon as Art Campaign. The public was asked to select a favorite orbiter image of the moon for the cover of a special image collection. After two weeks of voting, the public has selected Tycho Central Peak as its favorite moon image. The stunningly beautiful Tycho Central Peak rests inside an impact crater and has a boulder over 100 meters wide at its summit. It showcases a breathtaking view of the lunar landscape.
