Beautiful: Orange Soil and... ??

Post  Copernicus on Mon Oct 08, 2012 8:52 pm

Ahh, Q, perhaps we can have some fun with this 70mm Hassy image taken on the lunar surface by one of the Apollo 17 astronauts!! This is a beautiful image, showing the North Massif with the scarp and Hanover crater in the distance. The orange soil was what initially drew my interest here...



A higher res image is available here:

Note that there is even a color calibration image available for this roll of film and camera, and the colors can be matched to produce a nicer image.

There are other items besides orange soil here, and perhaps they are worth discussing? Very Happy

The regolith of the moon is not grey. That's a lie.The moon is a color full place and NASA deliberately reduced colors in her images of the moonscape. With (free) software like Emphasis you could try to bring back the original colors.
