South Pole Map

This map is a composite of LRO Diviner data, Earth-based radar and Kaguya topography

using Diviner control

Grid circle spacing – 0.5o (15 km)

slide3

IlluminationMapderived from Kaguyatopography

Black – permanent darkness

Yellow – 50% sunlit

Red – over 50% sunlit

(from Bussey et al., NLSF 2009)

slide4

Combined illumination and base map

Yellow areas near the pole are preferred

slide5

OpenLuna landing site region

Yellow areas have the best illumination

Uncoloured areas have permanent darkness

slide6

Suggested OpenLuna landing sites

Order of preference is alphabetical
