Anyone already tried LROC Images Database to verify these (or other) anomalies?
Here is how:
• Goto wms.lroc.asu.edu...
• Enter coordinates: latitude: -73 (=73°W), longitude: 145 (=145°W)
• Click on “Recenter” -> center of picture shows latitude/longitude
• Click on “Toggle Layer”, mark in Basemaps “Lunar Orbiter Mosaic”, in LROC NACS both options, in Overlays “Crater Names” and
“10°Grid”, confirm with “Update Layers”
• Zoom in to approx. 30-20km scale
What you get is a picture with red stripes. There are always two red stripes in parallel, one is called NACL (= narrow angle camera left), the other
one called NACR (narrow angle camera right).
Now activate “Get footprint info” in “Click to change mouse action” (right side, middle section).
When clicking on the pair of red stripes of your interest you will get the two LROC pictures (scroll down, pictures are listed below image map) to
Off topic: I tried this with the famous “Apollo 20” image of the “crashed starship” (coordinates latitude: -18.75, longitude: 117.68) but
there are no fitting LROC images yet…
