The mapping of the Moon is the subject of the discipline of selenography, which until the last twelve years was based exclusively on observations made from the Earth. Photography of the Moon from deep-space probes and, in particular, by the U.S. Lunar Orbiters 1–5, inaugurated a new epoch in the history of selenography.
