But sure it is nice - it only took them 50 years to get a decent picture of the moon. Good work NASA.

Will any of these pictures show the structures on the moon?
Also, is there a picture that shows the tracks made by the moon rover when it was driven around?

I like the idea of fake colors on the moon.

Over the next few weeks we will discuss these images and point out some extremely odd findings.
Here is a word from John Lear...
The United States Geological Survey (USGS) Science For A Changing World Astrogeology Research Program posted a picture of the moon in PDS Map-A-Planet format. The composite pictures taken by Clementine in 1994 show heavy censoring and ridiculous ‘cut and paste’ photos both inside and around lunar craters.
We ask your help in exposing this government fraud by locating and describing these amateur‘ cut and paste’ jobs.
We have found many and they are not hard to locate.
Our question is: censoring is the governments job but why the ridiculous ‘cut and paste’ pictures?
This CD-ROM data set contains the Engineering Data Record (EDR) image archive for the Clementine mission acquired by 5 experiments: the Ultraviolet/Visible Camera, the Near-Infrared Camera, the Long Wavelength Infrared Camera, the High Resolution Imaging Camera, and the Star Tracker Cameras. The EDR images are the raw images acquired by these experiments. The only processing performed on these data is to organize and format the data according to Planetary Data System (PDS) standards.[/ The images are in the original compressed format, a Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) algorithm, in which they were stored on board the Clementine spacecraft. Software for the decompression of these images is available on each disk.
This data set contains digital image model strip mosaics produced from images taken by the Clementine High Resolution Camera. All mosaics are geometrically controlled, calibrated, and compiled from non-uniformity corrected, 750 nanometer ('D') filter high resolution observations. The strips are approximately 1.75 deg latitude extent (2653 lines) and widths correponding to the tile's valid data extent, usually no more than about 300 pixels. The mosaics cover sub-polar regions between 80 deg S and 80 deg N with the sinusoidal equal area mapping at 20 m/pixel and the polar regions above 80 deg with a stereographic mapping at 30 m/pixel resolution at the poles.
