My first photo from the MoonKam

Published by at 10:03 pm under astronomy,Cosmos Research Center

I’ve signed up the Cosmos Research Center to be a participant in the MoonKam project, which allows students to take pictures of the moon from the NASA Grail Satellites, Ebb and Flow, that are orbiting the moon to measure its gravity.   Scientist Abby chose the spot and typed in the coordinates for this image.

It is an image of the south pole, of the Schrodinger Crater.  It is on the far side of the moon, so it is not visible from the earth.  I’m going to try to print this in glow-in-the-dark ink so she can put it on her bedroom ceiling.
