At S&T, we do a lot more than publish a monthly magazine. In addition to our website, we also produce a variety of new products. Two years ago, our biggest project was the 7 decade anniversary DVD collection. Last year, we worked with Southern Stars to produce our SkyWeek app and partnered with Firefly Books on Sue French's Deep-Sky Wonders. And now we're particularly excited to announce our new Moon globe.
"But wait a minute," you might be thinking, "Moon globes have been around for decades."
That's true, but there's never been a Moon globe quite like ours. Previous Moon globes have used artistic renderings of the lunar surface. Sky & Telescope's new globe is based on actual images from cameras on NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) taken under nearly consistent ideal lighting conditions – 15,000 actual images to be exact. In other words, our globe is the first one that shows the Moon as it really is. The globe is illustrated with over 850 labeled lunar features including craters, valleys, Apollo landing sites, and many more. It also comes with a Sky & Telescope Moon Guide.
This 12" globe also comes with a FREE stand.
