Vote For Your Favorite LRO Pic

Hey Space Placers!

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.
