About the Authors
  • The highly successful Clementine mission to the Moon in 1994 gave scientists their first global look at the Moon, and both the near and far side were mapped. This atlas is based on the data collected by the Clementine mission. It covers the entire Moon in 144 Lunar Aeronautical Charts (LACs), and represents the most complete lunar nomenclature database in existence, listing virtually all named craters and other features. This is the first atlas to show the entire lunar surface in uniform scale and format. A section of color plates shows lunar composition and physical properties.

    • Features 144 Clementine and LROC-derived annotated shaded relief LAC charts covering the entire surface of the Moon - given in uniform scale and format
    • Colour plates show the lunar composition and physical properties
    • Lists all named craters and other features, making it one of the most complete lunar nomenclature databases
