Selene

A still shot from Japan's Kaguya/SELENE moon probe shortly it launched one of two mini-satellites. The western rim of Oceanus Procellarum is clearly visible in the image, which was taken on Oct. 5 about 497 miles (800 kilometers) from the Moon. Credit: JAXA (Thanks to Space.com)

Jaxa, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, has also released an HDTV image of the moon taken by the mini-satellite. Click the link to play it, and imagine how much more information they are still analyzing.
