NASA'S Mosaic Moon

NASA released a false mosaic of moon, constructed from a series of 53 images .

Mosaic moon

As NASA spacecraft Galileo travelled over the northern region of the moon in 1992, on its way to Jupiter, it took several images.  From this series of 53 images, a false-color mosaic, that helps us see variations in the moon’s northern hemisphere, has now been created. 

In this image, the bright pink areas denote the lunar highlands. The blue-to-orange shades denote ancient lava flows from volcanic eruptions.  

The oval-shaped area near the bottom of the image indicates the lava-filled impact basin, Mare Crisium. The dark blue area, Mare Tranquillitatis, is where Apollo 11 made its landing. 

The light blue colors denote mineral rich areas where there have been recent meteorite or asteroid impacts.  In this area, the craters that have prominent blue rays extending from them are the youngest craters.
