tycho central peak - moon crater

NASA have released a video that provides the most detailed tour of the Moon to date. Using a mix of photos and computer simulation from data collected by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) it covers some of the the Moons most interesting features including the Orientale Basin, Tycho Crater (pictured above), Taurus Littrow Valley (the location of Apollo 17′s Lander and Rover) and some of the most detailed footage from the far side of the Moon.

The complete collection of clips used in the “tour” are available to download on the NASA site.
