You have a chance to choose the cover picture of "Moon As Art", a collection of images created using Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) data by voting for your favourite picture.


To celebrate its fifth anniversary, the LRO mission will present the collection of images, NASA said in a statement.

NASA has presented the top five images to the public to vote for the best picture.

The best picture will feature as the cover of "Moon As Art" collection and people can vote for their favourite picture at the LRO website.

"'The Moon as Art' collection gives the public the opportunity to see the moon as others have seen it for centuries - as an inspirational muse - but this time from the perspective of being in orbit with a series of 'eyes' that see in different parts of the electromagnetic spectrum," said Brooke Hsu, science education specialist at the Lunar and Planetary Institute, Maryland.

You can vote for your preferred picture reflecting the beauty and scientific value by orbiter mission team members.

"LRO has been a remarkable mission with discoveries that have given us insight into solar system history and the inner workings of the moon," said John Keller, LRO project scientist at Nasa's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.
