KAGUYA (SELENE) taking around "Antoniadi" by HDTV. (C)JAXA/NHK


The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency(JAXA) launched "KAGUYA (SELENE)" by the H-IIA Launch Vehicle at 10:31:01 a.m. on September 14, 2007 (JST) from Tanegashima Space Center. The major objectives of the "KAGUYA" mission are to obtain scientific data of the lunar origin and evolution and to develop the technology for the future lunar exploration.

Antoniadi crater is unique for three reasons: 1) unique impact crater shape; 2) deep impact depth; and 3) smooth crater floor material.

That is so beautiful, Crisp and clean. I'm pretty sure there will be those out there that will say it looks fake because it's such a great quality.

NO STARS.

Imagine that

I remember a thread where John Lear was asked to comment on some high definition photos of the moon by Japan/JAXA, if i remember correct tha answer was 'plastic models' or something like that. I am happy that JAXA finnally decided to release some of the material collected since 2007, up til this spring it has been very sparse. The amount of data collected over the duration of the mission must be HUGE, this is the most comprehensive mission to the moon since NASA Apollo missions in the 1960-1970s, including all the Clementine images, so imho it is very important that the general public get access to this material as soon as possible. Since its HDTV any anomalies, if released, cant be explained away so easily.

Very fine resolution, clear as day. What will the Japanese think of next? Man those shots of the moon are gorgeous!

I found something very interesting at 50 seconds into the vid.
A partially covered face sculpture. Look at it closely and it is very convincing.
Here is a captured image of the vid.

Don't judge from these images, but from the video. These are shrunken down.

Judging by the curvature of the Moon in the video, I think that "face" would be about the size of a city.

I suppose it's possible that an ancient civilization could have been building statues the size of cities, but it's more likely simply a natural formation.

No rough edges and a soft coating covers all the craters and ground.
No rays at all.

A very wavy surface that goes to flat in the large crater with
the cliff edge.

They don't duplicate US views or do they.

I'm normally quick to defend stuff like this but even at full resolution it looks like cgi to me, it's just so clean!

It almost looks like upscaled low definition footage, I don't know if it's just overprocessed or what but it certainly looks nothing like any photos or footage I've seen from previous lunar missions.

Maybe this is simply their idea of beauty? in any case something isn't quite right there should be huge amounts of detail in this footage, thousands of dimples and ridges and gritty textures and shadows, I wouldn't say it was a plastic model by any means but it does look artificial.

Is this actual video footage or is it based on a radar model? that would explain a lot.

I think it looks so clean because thats how the moon looks. This is the first time we've seen the moon in this way. Its all new. Naturally we are going to think its too crystal to be true.
