Comet 209P/Linear will be the 9th closest comet passing by Earth tonight! Tune in to watch as we stream live from the Foothill College Observatory.

We'll have live commentary from SSERVI's very own Brian Day, SETI Institute's Peter Jenniskens and Foothill Observatory's Richard Baldridge! 

Feel free to post or Tweet us with any questions you may have! (@NASA_Lunar)

Scientists, using cameras aboard NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), have created the largest high resolution mosaic of our moon’s north polar region. The six-and-a-half feet (two-meters)-per-pixel images cover an area equal to more than one-quarter of the United States.
The images making up the mosaic were taken by the two LRO Narrow Angle Cameras, which are part of the instrument suite known as the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC). The cameras can record a tremendous dynamic range of lit and shadowed areas.

To view the image with zoom and pan capability, visit: http://lroc.sese.asu.edu/gigapan
