A blog about a system to determine terrestrial albedo by earthshine observations. Feasible thanks to sheer determination.

Driving on the Moon

Data reduction issuesPosted by Daddy-o Aug 29, 2012 02:14PM
In order to extract fluxes from particular areas of the Moon we need to take lunar libration into account. Based on the synthetic model code Hans wrote we can do that now.

On the left is the synthetic model. On the right is the observed image. On it are some dots - they are supposed to be inside Mare Crisium and Mare Nectaris and two other locations on the darkened side. We see that we nail Nectaris and Crisium. Doing this for every observed image we will be able to extract feature fluxes and compile DS/BS statistics.
