Caption

Lunar surface. Animation zooming in to the Mare Orientale (Eastern Sea) on the Moon's surface, starting with a natural colour view and ending with a topographic colour-coded view. The Mare Orientale is a multi-ring basin formed by a massive asteroid impact that then filled with lava. Its position is half on the lunar near side and half on the lunar far side. The colour-coding shows the surface topography, using data 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 elevation, through red, yellow, green and blue, with purple being the lowest elevation. The LRO was launched on 18th June 2009.
