Honoring a lunar orbiter, two fantastic new NASA videos

NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has been orbiting the moon for 1,000 days. Celebrate by watching two new eye-popping videos.

NASA released two new videos this week in honor of 1,000 days in orbit for its Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO). These videos come from the LRO team at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. And they are beautiful!

Bottom line: Enjoy these two new videos released this week in honor of 1,000 days in orbit by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO). The first video takes viewers through the moon’s evolutionary history, and reveals how it came to appear the way it does today. The second video gives viewers a guided tour of prominent locations on the moon’s surface, compiled by the spacecraft’s observations of the moon. Man! NASA is getting good at making videos!
