  Moon Map Moon Map: Astronomy: Moon Map - NAVIGATING THE MOON

NAVIGATING THE MOON

The eight Moon maps on the following pages portray the Moon with north up. This is how it appears to naked-eye observers in the Northern Hemisphere. Depending on what type of telescope you use, your telescope image may be oriented differently. Also bear in mind that the Moon appears south up in the Southern Hemisphere.

  Moon Map Moon Map: Astronomy: Moon Map - Moon Activity-IS THE MOON ACTIVE

IS THE MOON ACTIVE?

Searches for activity on the Moon began with Galileo almost 400 years ago and have continued ever since. Observers have claimed to see mists obscuring craterlets on Plato's floor, a glow on the central peak of Alphonsus, and the "disappearance" of the Linne crater, to name just a few examples. Are these transient lunar phenomena (TLPs) the result of meteorite strikes or gaseous escapes from the Moon's interior—or are| they merely tricks of the light and an over-eager imagination?

  Moon Map Moon Map: Astronomy: Moon Map - ICE ON THE MOON

ICE ON THE MOON

If rocky Asteroids and meteorites can hit the Moon, so can comets. But a comet would have a different effect from an asteroid because comets are extremely rich in water. The impact of a large comet would, like any asteroid, create a big crater. But it would also give the Moon a tenuous and temporary atmosphere loaded with water vapor.
