        Tour of the Moon | NASA Planetary Sciences

        Take a tour of the Moon's surface features in this video from NASA. Images and topographic maps show craters, rocks, mountains, basins, and valleys, including the Orientale basin, Shackleton crater, South Pole-Aitken basin, Tycho crater, Aristarchus plateau, Mare Serenitatis, Compton-Belkovich volcano, Jackson crater, and Tsiolkovsky crater. False colors indicate elevation: blue areas are lowest and red areas are highest. Satellite images and measurements from missions such as the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter improve scientific understanding of how Earth's moon and other rocky planets in the solar system evolved.

        Catalogued from "Tour of the Moon"/NASA/GSFC.
