Happy #MoonMonday! #DidYouKnow that our Moon is a surprisingly dynamic place? New impact craters are being formed. Volcanic activity, once thought long extinct, may have happened in the recent past. The crust has recently fractured from slow interior cooling and shrinking of the Moon. It may still be shrinking today!
NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft has been studying the Moon from lunar orbit since 2009. Its high-resolution imaging system, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC), has taken over a million images of the surface and revealed details never before seen. Many of these images are part of our "A New Moon Rises" exhibition. #ANewMoonRises
