Lunar Data at the PDS Geosciences Discipline Node includes: Elevations on the Moon Relative to a 1737.4 Km Reference Sphere

    This data product is a shape map (radius) of the Moon at a resolution of 473.802 m/pix by 473.802 m/pix, based on altimetry data acquired through mission phase LRO_ES_03 by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter LRO/LOLA instrument. The map is in the form of a binary table with one row for each 0.015625 degrees of latitude. Map values are relative to a radius of 1737.4 km. Each sample represents height in Km relative to the reference sphere.

    Web sites that characterize the meteoroid environment of the moon

    The following NASA Meteoroid Environment Office sites provide data on the meteoroid environment at the Earth and the Moon. The data on these sites are not calibrated and are subject to weather and lunar phase effects so meteoroid fluxes cannot be inferred from the data. Further information on the MEO can be found at

    Meteor Activity at the Earth
    Current fireball meteor activity over the Meteoroid Environment Office's all-sky camera network The last 20 days' observations are available from the menu on the left of the page.

    Meteoroid Impacts on the Moon
    A list of NASA's observed lunar impacts can be found at Note that the data on this site has not been calibrated and is only updated every few weeks. The phase of the Moon allows observations only about 10 nights per month (between 0.1 and 0.5 illumination) and weather further reduces the observing time.
