The National Air and Space Musuem's newest exhibition A New Moon Rises: New Views from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera will open on February 26, 2016 in Gallery 211. 

The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) has captured dramatic landscapes of the Moon for more than six years. A New Moon Rises showcases those breathtaking images from Apollo landing sites to majestic mountains that rise out of the darkness of the lunar poles. The 61 large prints presented in this exhibition reveal a celestial neighbor that is surprisingly dynamic, full of grandeur and wonder.
