Luna surface filmed during orbit

NASA’s GRAIL project was completed last month by crashing the two satellites into a mountain on the moon. The satellites called Ebb and Flow had been orbiting the moon during the past two years, and mapped the moon’s gravitational forces.

But three days before being forced down, Ebb and Flow filmed the surface of Luna during their last orbit. And the clip from this flight can be seen below.
