One of the primary scientific objectives of LROC is to identify regions of permanent shadow and near-permanent illumination. Since the start of the mission, LROC has acquired thousands of wide angle camera images and combined them to produced this mosaic, which is composed of 983 images taken over a one month period during northern summer.
