Blue (and yellow and green...) Moon

Posted on July 06 2018, by Dave Vail

Often we find maps that will likely never ever be actually useful, but are nonetheless so striking we have to have this. This is one of those - it could be a modern painting. It was made by NASA and covers the southern pole of the moon. Each color represents a different crater or type of geology. The result is one of the most striking maps we've ever seen.

If you are interested in a copy, we have some here.
