Overview

National Geographic’s “The Earth’s Moon” is like having an atlas and almanac in one. This incredibly informative wall map features detailed depictions of the entire surface of the moon with a selective index showing the named physical features. Diagrams show the moon’s orbital paths, rotation around Earth, librations, how solar and lunar eclipses occur, and how the moon affects Earth’s tides. The phases of the moon are detailed along with the features visible in each phase. Craters, mountain ranges, highlands, seas, rays, and other physical features are described, as are the moon’s physical properties, moon lore, and more. Comparisons to the moons of other planets in our solar system and information on the Apollo Missions is included as well. This map is both an attractive object of art and a handy reference tool for anyone interested in astronomy.


The map is encapsulated in heavy-duty 1.6 mil laminate which makes the paper much more durable and resistant to the swelling and shrinking caused by changes in humidity. Laminated maps can be framed without the need for glass, so the frames can be much lighter and less expensive.

    Comments about Earth's Moon Wall 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 Great map and first printed in 1969 never seems outdated.
