Colors are formed by displaying the 950 nm mosaic in red, the 750 nm mosaic in green, and the 415 nm mosaic in blue.

K. this was the closest i could come to it as it was lagging really bad. Not sure if its because so many people are using it or what, but it kept timing out. It's big so I'm going to link to it instead of posting it in the thread

Until now, at least, I think this should be in the "Space Exploration" forum, unless there is something that I had not noticed and that makes this really a "Aliens & UFOs" post.

ALL the Clementine images have been available to the public to download for free (or you can buy a complete set on CD-ROM) from NASA since 1994.
the USGS PDS Map-A-Planet is really nothing new, it’s just new to YOU. It’s based on this…
Clementine Lunar Basemap Image Mosaics on CD-ROM (PDS)
Is there some reason unknown to me why this post is completely ignored? Is the information inaccurate or something?
Clementine had five different imaging systems on-board. The UV/Visible camera had a filter wheel with six different filters, ranging from 415 nm to 1000 nm, and including a broad-band filter covering 400 to 950 nm. The Near Infrared camera also had a six-filter wheel, ranging from 1100 nm to 2690 nm. The Longwave Infrared camera had a wavelength range of 8000 to 9500 nm. The Hi-Res imager had a broad-band filter from 400 to 800 nm and four other filters ranging from 415 to 750 nm. The Star Tracker camera was also used for imaging.
This is a false color image of the crater Tycho (43 deg S, 11 deg W; 85 km diameter). Although the natural color of the Moon is a brownish-gray, the color here has been artificially "stretched" by computer to aid in visual interpretation. The central peak complex (center) shows a blue coloration, indicating that different rocks occur here than elsewhere in the crater. The color images provided by the Clementine spacecraft will allow us to map rock types over the entire Moon.
This mosaic of Clementine UVVIS images covers the center of the impact crater Tycho. It was formed when a large meteorite (or comet) slammed into the Moon. The version on the right is a 3 color composite (415 nm, 750 nm, 1000 nm); the version in the center is a color composite of wavelength ratios which show different rock and soil types. Note the distinct color difference of the central peak due to excavation of deep material during the impact that formed the crater. The ratio image on the left enhances an unusual polygonal pattern in the floor of the crater. The origin of this feature is not clear, however future work using all 11 wavelengths collected by the UVVIS and NIR cameras will most likely reveal the origin of these enigmatic "cracks".

ON LIGHT SOURCE AND THE COLOR IMAGES
Before you comment on the color seen in these images...
The page settings that we have directly linked to above are the Albedo Intermediate Version
Lunar Data Sets Supported
The moon_clementine_bw is the Clementine Lunar 750nm basemap data
The moon_clementine_bw or Clementine "albedo" is the brightness of the Moon as measured at 750 nm wavelength by the UVVIS camera. It is a black-and-white image.

And continue to ignore the technical information about wavelengths and colors that has already been given to you to help you understand what you’re actually looking at? Okey dokey.

On an unrelated note.. One of the main drawbacks with this research is we are looking at flat maps, it's very hard to judge the 3-D characteristics of these formations

The fact that you have an animosity towards John has been made very clear in many of your posts, and it seems to blind you from the point we are making here, but thats okay... I am sure many others are enjoying the new view of the moon that they have seen for the first time in such magnificent splendor, no matter what may be in them.
