The Moon

In 2013, I read two books that have greatly influenced me. The first was A Man on the Moon by Andrew Chaikin, and the second was To a Rocky Moon by geologist Don E. Wilhelms. I have always liked planetary science, but my interest and knowledge of the moon have reached a new level since reading these books and many others since that time.

This page will be a work in progress for a while because I've done a lot of lunar stuff over the last two years.

Here is a playlist of my videos on the moon from youtube.

Using Hasselblad camera and Mapping camera images from the Apollo Program, I have created a sequences of anaglyphs of the lunar surface:
Apollo 8, Magazine C (partial)
Apollo 15, Revolution 27
Apollo 16, Revolution 28

I have uploaded pictures from the Lunar Orbiter program, the Surveyor program, and the Apollo program to wikipedia.

I sometimes take my own pictures of the moon:
