The Online Journal of the American Lunar Society


For nearly thirty years, Selenology has published amateur studies of the moon. From profiles of lunar mountains to discussions of the SMART-1 probe to simple guides for viewing, articles cover the moon from many different angles.

Selenology has carried discussions of the origin of tektites, the formation of lunar craters, the topography of the Montes Recti and Montes Teneriffe, the performance of software designed for lunar study, the fate of Yerkes Observatory, Catena Davy, the topography of Rupes Cauchy, and highlights from the Lunar and Planetary Science Conferences. Photographs of previously un-remarked features have graced its pages beside other photographs by members (some of whom are among the world’s best lunar photographers). Selenology has even carried that all-too-elusive genre: lunar poetry.
