Our Moon as Seen by Chandrayaan-1


This image shows a region of the lunar south pole taken by Chandrayaan-1. The bright terrain on the lower left is the rim of 117 km wide Moretus crater.

Another piece of update: the Moon Impact Probe (MIP) onboard Chandrayaan-1 had been released and dropped close to Shackleton crater on November 14. Shackleton crater is interesting to us because deep inside the crater there are areas that are never illuminated by the Sun and we think that ice may exist there, which is important to us if we plan to setup a base there.
