Clair de Lune 4K Version - Moon Images from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter

Follow by Email
This visualization uses a digital 3D model of the Moon built from global elevation maps and image mosaics by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mission. It was created to accompany a performance of Claude Debussy's Clair de Lune by the National Symphony Orchestra Pops, led by conductor Emil de Cou, at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC, on June 1 and 2, 2018, as part of a celebration of NASA's 60th anniversary. Clair de Lune (moonlight in French) was published in 1905, as the third of four movements in the composer's Suite Bergamasque, and unlike the other parts of this work, Clair is quiet, contemplative, and slightly melancholy, evoking the feeling of a solitary walk through a moonlit garden. The visuals were composed like a nature documentary, with clean cuts and a mostly stationary virtual camera. The viewer follows the Sun throughout a lunar day, seeing sunrises and then sunsets over prominent features on the Moon. The sprawling ray system surrounding Copernicus crater, for example, is revealed beneath receding shadows at sunrise and later slips back into darkness as night encroaches.

František Vtelenský : Breathtaking! Thank you, NASA! :)

Dragoro : Oh. My. God. Besides the moon being my favorite celestial object, this video is everything to me. Give the top director and audio studio a raise. That's the work I hope to give someday. I am studying mechanical engineering and I am hoping to move into aerospace. I love space and I love our gorgeous planets. I want to design and build ships to allow anyone to come and see these amazing views! I am so jelouse of these views you captured and I am so happy you can share them here with us. I caught amazing views of the solar eclipse even including a view of the land around us with my drone. It was magical. Then I saw your view from the ISS and was jelouse again (I did catch the ISS on my camera watching the eclipse too!!). I am getting into arduino with the help of my physics teacher and I am designing a model rocket to be multistaged and using the arduino to control it as well as collecting data on the atmospheric pressure and tempurature and other such readings, whatever I can think of. My biggest goal is to get an audio device high as I can and when it comes back down, feed it through an oscilloscope and see if I can make something of it. I also prwctice some orbital mechanics and calculations using ksp as my "simulation" to see if my math is right. I do hope to put something around the moon with survailence equipment and land it on the moon remotely. I want to step on the moon, but first I want to see it with my own creation. I look up every night and bask in the light the moon provides and sit in darkness awaiting the next time when its path is not over the USA. Thank you for the video. It continues to inspire me to come make history!!!

Oil. : this is so sad and beautiful

Flavio Nunes : The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof. The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward. Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer. Psalms 19

Mr Fox : Love this song, love the moon, Perfect video👌🏻

Illuminati Finder : Thanks NASA... just thankful for this❤
