This mosaic shows the Moon's North polar area and was taken during first phase of the SMART-1 mission in 2005.
This mosaic is valuable as it shows illumination conditions at the region. It is important to understand global illumination conditions to help in planning the location of future landing sites and, later, possible bases, on the Moon.
