LADEE Star Tracker Image with Craters Lichtenberg A and Schiaparelli E
The image shown here was acquired on Feb. 8, 2014, around 23:45 UTC, while LADEE was carrying out atmospheric measurements. A series of five images were taken at one-minute intervals, and caught features in the northern western hemisphere of the moon. LADEE was traveling approximately 60 miles (100 km) per minute along its orbit. All images were taken during lunar night, but with Earthshine illuminating the surface. This final image views craters Lichtenberg A and Schiaparelli E in the smooth mare basalt plains of Western Oceanus Procellarum, west of the Aristarchus plateau.

LADEE Star Tracker Image with Montes Agricola and Raman Crater
The image shown here was acquired on Feb. 8, 2014, around 23:45 UTC, while LADEE was carrying out atmospheric measurements. A series of five images were taken at one-minute intervals, and caught features in the northern western hemisphere of the moon. LADEE was traveling approximately 60 miles (100 km) per minute along its orbit. All images were taken during lunar night, but with Earthshine illuminating the surface. This third image caught a minor lunar mountain range, Montes Agricola, which is northwest of the large bright crater Aristarchus (out of view), as well as the flat-floored crater Raman, about six miles (10 km) diameter.
