Tour of the Moon in 4K

Published on Apr 9, 2018
Take a virtual tour of the Moon in all-new 4K resolution, thanks to data provided by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft. As the visualization moves around the near side, far side, north and south poles, we highlight interesting features, sites, and information gathered on the lunar terrain.

  • a photoshopped version of the moon removing the bases.

  • I`ll just put it here ... A Clock shaped( chambes on same axis within oposite sides ) sterling engine that would be connected to any kind of engine to create electricity other than solar panels . I see tons of problems with this including the price and lunar dust issue but go bite this one internet ;)

  • Science fiction but all day with a phony globe and planets.

  • My synthwave music went perfectly with this.

  • Why can't you just give us actual photos, or video?

  • Amazing how you zoomed in 3D to show that crater with a mountain inside with a boulder resting on top as clear as day then it went to the Apollo 17 site just giving a birds eye view and not very clear??? Hmmmmm strange, or???

  • Marivic papio

  • Formidable, mil veces formidable. Nunca conseguiré, captar vídeos como este de la NASA, con mis aparatos electrónicos.

  • YES, YES, YESSSSS. We need to be back on the moon.

  • the moon is a sacred place i belive

  • nice

  • To coin a phrase Fascinating.........

  • Since we have new technology, why can't we see the dark side, since it is illuminated by the sun despite we, from earth can not view? Interesting is also the ability to view the surface in more detail than as if we have no zoom lenses capable to show. Why? Why continuing view by tecnical, and mathematical models and not by the reality?

  • More photos of the Apollo landing sites please!

  • Why are they not zooming in to show us that Lander? They’re just telling us! Let us see it liars

  • Flat Earthers in 5, 4, 3, ....

  • 180929

  • Türkler👋

  • i think that everything is fake, we have never been on the moon,

  • Amazing cgi created at nasa studios

  • Not buying this cgi, hollywood, science insulting ,wand waving, fake space! We the people want our money back!

  • With that kind of detail, I am more interested in all the structures that exist on the moon. THOSE are far more interesting to me than just a high resolution (and EDITED) 3-D model of the Earth's moon. This video is just a fun little Public Relations blurb that is well made for the purpose that it is intended to fulfill. Now NASA, let's get to the marrow beneath the bone.

  • Impact craters. Mmm... all projectiles must have came in at 90 degrees. Interesting... very interesting...!!!

  • 4k is my egg

  • why did they leave the Luna rover so far from the Landing Module,me think they ran out of petrol or had a flat and had to thumb it back to base??????????

  • مرحبا انا عراقي لديه معلومه حوله مشكلة حل التخلص من فضلات الرواد لدي حل


  • the whole video is animation and CGI and people this is real. what a joke

  • Lo unico claro es que saben usar muy bien las computadoras :v

  • thank you nasa, I hope more people get in to this videos.

  • WOW!! NASA has come a long way since Kubrick

  • Human never landed on the moon. Great video editing for the fake landing site!

  • I especially liked the part where they photoshopped on top of the other photoshop and cgi.

  • 2:21 Thor's hammer, anyone?

  • The moon is our most intimate being, but we don't know much about the moon. I know what the moon looks like, but I don't know what it looks like, but I think it was born like this. It's a combination of debris from a collision between a primitive Earth and a Mars-sized planet, because there's hard sand on the moon. Hardened sand rises above 1500°C. Maybe it's because of the heat stroke. But the moon is so incredibly spherical that it's really a mystery.

  • Destroy the moon of lies . Destroy the moon before the moon destroys earth .

  • Just another composite

  • Moon is no light source or turn off and captured

  • Why you need to tell so much lies ??

  • Where are all the alien bases all these you-tube nuts keep talking about?????

  • Khooseang

  • 我可以帮你找我

  • You killed alot of animals just because of your mission going to space :(

  • Add "CGI" to your titles next time so i know not to waste my time.

  • If the resolution is so high why do we not see the supposed Apollo 11 Landing (When we didn't have the technology) but the last Apollo 17 (When we barely had the technology to get to the moon) I still don't believe we ever went. We might have dumped some Stanley Kubrick Props on the moon made of Cardboard. FAKE!!!

    • Dan Brown we do,

  • But the ‘60 tapes were lost!

  • Fake... Is computer... Simulation is jajajaja NASA is fake

  • Why are there 758 down votes? Are there people who don't like the moon?

  • .|.

  • Thank goodness there was no cloud cover when they took all those pictures!

  • Woah! Amazing

  • Tour of the moon in CGI

  • Flat earthers

  • Fake

  • Any chance of posting a version of this without the annoying "dramatic" music ? The moon doesn't need it. Commentary alone is better.

  • The moon is flat and the earth is a square

  • Talk about the structures on the moon, the ET vehicles, and bases...

  • I can't ignore the fact that the craters don't look like craters, the maths doesn't add up, the shallow depths compared to the radius of each of them are literally IMPOSSIBLE. so what is the moon? It could be solid titanium, the crust at least.

  • kinerja NASA memang baik, kalian adalah pejuang dunia, kalian adalah pahlawan dunia. kami sangat berterimakasih pada kalian. berkat kalian kami sekarang bisa menikmati segala teknologi canggih seperti di jaman sekarang ini dan tidak ketinggalan informasi yg diluar nalar. NASA TERBAIK 😊

  • animation is the only thing you know to do.......liers

    • mundo erroneo ... back in your hole little man.

  • Hi

  • Apollo 17 part was great. Whole video is great

  • If you're a moon landing denier, this is not a good video to see.

  • Nice editing i love it

  • If this was the Russians , we would not be able to see any of this .Thanks to NASA, we get to see all of it for free !

    • get to see all of it in cgi that is

  • 2:20-2:30 The Monolith?

  • This video says ultra high definition camera but it’s CGI - what is that about

    • Marty Warner insults for no reason. Is that your best rebuttal to my claim? lol.

    • Anthony Salerno back in your hole little man

  • So is water on the moon a lie? just to say Velikovsky isnt right !

  • FAKE animation

  • This would be an awesome VR experience.

  • These places are located on the surface of the earth and not the surface of the moon and what NASA does to discover the celestial planets is a political projection and analogy of a military political event against countries hostile to America

  • Is this a video of the real moon

  • Parasites will turn it into Swiss cheese !

  • Great film who was the director.

  • Fake

  • Where can I get one of those computers from

  • But NASA, why CGI? It should have been real photos.

  • Jimmy Neutron's dog has better things to do

  • THE EARTH IS FLAT 😡 Jk lol

  • The moon landings are a hoax.....just kidding. But the earth is definitely flat....I think.

  • Why they didn't show up images from the "dark side"?, ship is able to see it when it's solar sided.

    • Michael 마익흘 Aaronson The LRO shall be able to see Moon's far side when it's lighted, search Moon's rotational movement here at US-tv.

    • "Moon's rotational motion is tidally locked with its translation around Earth" Okay. That has nothing to do with your first question or my response.

    • Darth vader will be there

    • Michael 마익흘 Aronson Moon's rotational motion is tidally locked with its translation around Earth. It means that when is New Moon the so called "dark side" is fully illuminated... almost 14 terrestrial days or half Moon's day.

    • Because humans see things that are lit. If they showed the dark side, we wouldn't be able to see any details.

  • Fake

  • never too old for a good cartoon ;]

  • horrible music

  • That's a great video. Thanks for sharing.

  • Moon landing is real. Don't doubt on that.

  • "So maybe you'd be a good person to ask, who wrote, "The Moon Rulez #1" on my car, with a key."

  • Absolutely stunning....& creepy. Feel as if I'm somehow studying a ancient skeleton.

  • 713 people, think it is made of flat cheese.

  • ..volcanic activity on the moon.. ? iis that possible ..?

  • In Mars Put animals first there then let them Live

  • I think Nasa is kinda responding to the growing theory that they never been to moon. Either they feel guilty or they want to keep lying to us :D . I also notice the nice cool music implemented with their video like the flat earthers uploads :D. Fishy if you ask me. But you wont ask me , you will take this video as 100% fact valid.

    • "the growing theory" It's not. "they feel guilty or they want to keep lying to us" Or they took photos with a nice new camera and want to show us. "Fishy if you ask me. But you wont ask me" Correct. "you will take this video as 100% fact valid" Feel free to provide evidence that it's not real.

  • military base on the moon

  • [Insert conspiracy theorist comment here about the moon landing being filmed on a soundstage]

  • NASA bother to send an orbiter without a spy camera? Come on! They have spent millions but not a few more on a better camera?

  • Beautiful CGI.

  • '';;almost 50 years later, wd all the technology available today, NASA now relases 'new' videos of the moon landings, images, etc...'' kinda wonder....,,,🤣😅'''''


  • None of this is real footage just artist interpretation.

  • Thanks NASA....
