From the Far Side


Four weeks after the Chinese Chang’e 4 spacecraft landed on the far side of the Moon, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter approached the landing site from the east, rolled 70 degrees to the west, and snapped this view of Chang’e 4. The large crater in the center (just right and below arrows) is about 440 m across.
