NASA also posts timely photos of the moon taken by the Lunar Orbiter, a spacecraft designed to take pictures of the moon. The photos are accessible by searching and selecting the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter under the Missions section of NASA.gov. Publish under the Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project, the images are recovered photos from the Lunar Orbiters I to V.
