Comments about The Earth's Moon Map, Laminated:
The map hangs next to my door where I can refer to it after observing outside. I use it to identify lunar features. The map also is educational due to the additional information printed in written and graphic formats. It is large and not easily movable but is durable in the laminate format. Great map and first printed in 1969 never seems outdated.
