National Geographic's "The Earth's Moon" is like having an atlas and almanac in one. This incredible map/poster shows a detailed image of both sides of the Moon, an index of hundreds of lunar features, and landing spots for lunar missions. It includes graphics and descriptions of the moon's phases, its revolution in relation to the Earth and Sun, eclipses, and how the moon affects tides on Earth.

The updates on the Apollo Missions on the map were a nice surprise!
