The video “Tour of the Moon” takes viewers on a breathtaking journey across the moon’s surface. Several interesting locations include: Orientale Basin, Shackleton crater, South Pole-Aitken Basin, Tycho crater, Aristarchus Plateau, Mare Serenitatis, Compton-Belkovich volcano, Jackson crater and Tsiolkovsky crater.

This video was made in honor of the NASA Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter’s (LRO) first 1,000 days in orbit by a team at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt Md. LRO launched aboard an Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral, Fla., on June 18, 2009. LRO is managed by NASA Goddard for the Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington.
