Caption: Moon rotating to show its far side, with colour-coding showing its surface topography. The topographic data were gathered by the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA) on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) spacecraft, in orbit around the Moon. Surface height is colour-coded, with white areas being the highest altitude, through red, yellow, green and blue, with purple being the lowest elevation. The LRO was launched on 18th June 2009.
