Motomaro Shirao, Charles A. Wood , "The Kaguya Lunar Atlas: The Moon in High Resolution"

Sprin ger | 2011 | ISBN: 1441972846 | 174 pages | PDF | 85,8 MB

In late 2007 the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency placed the Kaguya/Selene spacecraft in orbit around the Moon. Like previous lunar orbiters, Kaguya carried scientific instruments to probe the Moon’s surface and interior. But it also had the first high-definition television camera (HDTV) sent to the Moon.
Sponsored by the Japanese NHK TV network, the HDTV has amazed both scientists and the public with its magnificent views of the lunar surface. What makes the images much more engaging than standard vertical-view lunar photographs is that they were taken looking obliquely along the flight path. Thus, they show the Moon as it would be seen by an astronaut looking through a porthole window while orbiting only 100 km above the lunar surface. This is the view we all would wish to have, but are never likely to, except vicariously through the awe-inspiring Kaguya HDTV images.
The remarkable Kaguya/Selene HDTV images are used here to create a new type of lunar atlas. Because of the unique perspective of the images each plate shows the surface in a manner that makes it visually appealing and scientifically understandable. Motomaro Shirao was a member of the Kaguya HDTV team and selected the targets for imaging. Charles Wood, an expert on lunar science and history, describes the pictures with text as informative as the images are beautiful.

Observing the Lunar Libration Zones - Alexander Vandenbohede

144 pages - English - 8.23 MB - 2005

This portfolio bundles images of the libration zones and intends to be a guide for observing these regions. The Moon’s limb is therefore divided in seven zones. All images are made with amateur equipment, so everybody can observe what is illustrated here.
A limited description of the libration zones and their geology is also given. The equipment used and the libration circumstances for the observations are given in Appendix I. A lunar timescale, to which the age of different structures is referred to, is given in appendix II.

So, get your telescope tuned and check the ephemerides to observe the libration zones!

Discover the Moon - Jean Lacroux , Christian Legrand , Christopher Sutcliffe

144 pages - English - 14.99 MB - Cambridge University Press (March 22, 2004)

The Moon is accessible to everyone. Because it is easy to observe everywhere, even in big cities, it is a prime target for aspiring astronomers and for those who are merely curious about the night sky. This easy-to-use guide to discovering lunar sites takes the reader through fourteen observing sessions from New Moon to Full Moon.

For each evening, the book shows which craters, mountains and other features can be seen, and how to find them. Each photograph shows what the observer actually sees through a telescope, solving the usual difficulties of orientation confronting beginners. Images are shown as they appear through both refracting and reflecting telescopes. Maps printed on the book's front and back flaps show the whole Moon with sites as seen through a refractor, through a Newtonian reflector, or, when turned upside-down, through binoculars.

Jean Lacroux has been a columnist for the French astronomy magazine Ciel et Espace for 25 years. He has published four successful amateur astronomy books in French. Christian Legrand is an engineer and amateur astronomer, who has been a passionate lunar observer since the Apollo missions.

"A colorful and good-looking introduction to lunar observing." Sky & Telescope

"This book is highly observable friendly. All images have south up and each is printed twice on as a mirror image to match the view through a telescope with a star diagonal. Terrific idea!" ASTRONOMY

National Academy “The Scientific Context for Exploration of the Moon: Final Report"

National Academies Press | 2007-07-03 | ISBN-10: 0309109191 | PDF | 116 pages | 1,1 Mb

Because of the Moon's unique place in the evolution of rocky worlds, it is a prime focus of NASA's space exploration vision. Currently NASA is defining and implementing a series of robotic orbital and landed missions to the Moon as the initial phase of this vision. To realize the benefits of this activity, NASA needs a comprehensive, well-validated, and prioritized set of scientific research objectives. To help establish those objective, NASA asked the NRC to provide guidance on the scientific challenges and opportunities enabled by sustained robotic and human exploration of the Moon during the period 2008-2013+.

This interim report, which focuses on science of the Moon, presents a number of scientific themes describing broad scientific goals important for lunar research, discussions of how best to reach these goals, a set of three priority areas that follow from the themes, and recommendations for these priorities and related areas. A final report will follow in the summer of 2007.
