What makes these images so much more engaging than standard vertical view lunar photography is that they are taken looking obliquely along the flight path. Thus, they show the Moon as it would be seen by an astronaut looking through a porthole window while orbiting only km above the lunar surface.

This is the view we all would wish to have but are never likely to, except vicariously through the awe-inspiring Kaguya HDTV images. Each page features a HDTV image with a map of the entire Moon on the upper left showing where the image is located. On the upper right is a word description. Everyone can appreciate the natural beauty and be entranced by the view of the nearby world where humans may one day live. What makes the images much more engaging than standard vertical-view lunar photographs is that they were taken looking obliquely along the flight path.

This is the view we all would wish to have, but are never likely to, except vicariously through the awe-inspiring Kaguya HDTV images. Because of the unique perspective of the images each plate shows the surface in a manner that makes it visually appealing and scientifically understandable.

Charles Wood, an expert on lunar science and history, describes the pictures with text as informative as the images are beautiful. He has written many articles about the Moon, volcanoes, geology, and geomorphology. He studies the Moon with the latest spacecraft images and with a small telescope in his backyard. Buy Used.
