For the first time the dark side of the moon has been captured by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter’s LOLA instruments. The rainbow colors correspond to the elevation of the terrain, going from 20,000 feet (red) to -20,000 feet (blue). The beautiful coloring highlights the unique sharp views of some of the largest impact craters in the solar system The image is part of an article on ten cool things discovered in the first year of the LRO, which includes the Moon landing sites but not this amazing close up of its surface.
