Location of the Lunar Field Imaged by NACO

April 21, 2005
Where is the NACO field at the Taruntius crater located on the Moon? A 400 x 400 km2 area surrounding this crater is shown in the right panel of this photo ; it has been reproduced from a photo mosaique with 500-metre resolution based on exposures made in 1994 by NASA's "Clementine" spacecraft in lunar orbit. Taruntius , Cameron and other craters in this area are identified in the diagram at the lower left. The area covered by the Clementine photo is outlined on a photo of the entire Moon (upper left), obtained at nearly the same phase as when the NACO image was made.
