My favorite spacecraft, Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) is coming up on its fifth anniversary in lunar orbit on June 18th.
I watched (and photographed) LRO being built at Goddard Space Flight Center and wrote a feature article on LRO for Sky & Telescope Magazine.
I have followed LRO through all of these years and think often of the spacecraft when I see the Moon and look at the latest images.
You can vote like I did on your favorite LRO photo that NASA has put forth in its "Moon As Art" contest.
I voted for Tycho Peak because it is simply stunning AND I can see the peak in my telescope - but not the prominent boulder ;-)
I hope you will vote as well and learn more about the Moon and LRO in the process.
