The Moon

 (JPG) The Moon (25,292 bytes) ( 500 x 463 )
In mid-April, the Terra spacecraft was turned upside down and pointed at the Moon. This ASTER image was acquired at that time, showing band 3 visible in black and white. The distortion in the shape of the Moon is due to the rate at which the lunar disk was scanned by ASTER. An image with the correct geometry is also shown. This maneuver was performed to provide a well-characterized radiometric and geometric target to the Terra instruments to help them refine the knowledge of their performance.
