The Moon - Clementine

Mosiac of the South Pole of the Moon

The Moon
Mosaic of 1500 Clementine images of the south polar region of the Moon. These images were taken through the red filter of the UV/visible camera. This image shows the south pole at the center and extends to 70 deg. S latitude at the edge, a distance of about 1250 km across the image. This region is dominated by a major depression centered near the south pole, resulting in shadowed areas. The 320 km diameter crater Schrodinger is near the edge of the image at 4:30.
