Selene – The Moon

11 06 2009

Ever wanted to see our natural satellite upclose and personal in full HD?
Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s spacecraft Selene might be the answer to your needs:

Original japanese name being Kaguya, it was sent there to map the Moon surface, and send us high def video:

Seems the spacecraft is getting closer and closer to the ground, and will eventually crash on 18:30, June 10, 2009 – close to the Moon’s South Pole.
It’s interesting how even though these are real Moon footages, it still kinda look like computer generated graphics…
Well, if you’d rather get those grayscale photos that we’re all more familiar with, there is always Google Moon
