Topographic Moon Globe TPMNGLB

Sky & Telescope Editor in Chief Robert Naeye introduces our newest globe:

You might remember that earlier this year we produced a new Moon globe based on 15,000 images from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (June issue, page 6). That globe has been such a big success in terms of customer interest and satisfaction that it compelled us to produce another LRO Moon globe in partnership with Replogle. This time, the globe is based on LRO altimetry data rather than camera images.

We're very proud of the result: Sky & Telescope's Topographic Moon Globe. As you can see, this 12-inch-wide globe is color-coded to highlight the dramatic variations in lunar elevations. Impact basins and deep craters show up clearly in blue, whereas high peaks and rugged terrain are colored white, red, and orange. Basins that are virtually invisible in the earlier Moon globe jump right out in the topographic version. The huge South Pole-Aitken Basin is particularly dramatic. The new globe has about 850 labeled features.

Developing these globes and ensuring their accuracy has been a team effort. But special commendations go to illustration director Gregg Dinderman, senior contributing editor Kelly Beatty, imaging editor Sean Walker, and production manager Mike Rueckwald. We also thank our friends on the LRO mission, at the U.S. Geological Survey, and at Replogle.

This globe comes with a FREE plastic stand.
