This image shows groundtracks of the D-CIXS X-ray telescope on board ESA's SMART-1. D-CIXS’s Facet 1 and Facet 3 are superimposed on the areas of the Moon overflown during observation which took place on 15 January 2005, during a solar flare. The centre track of each facet is also shown, along with the landing sites of the three Soviet Luna robotic landers. The underlying map is from USGS/PDS based on Clementine data (710nm ) and has been contrast enhanced.
