SMART-1 will be looking at the darker parts of the Moon's south pole

Satellite: Clementine

This view of the south polar region of the Moon is created from a mosaic of 1500 images taken by the American Clementine spacecraft. This image shows the south pole at the centre and extends a distance of about 1250 km across the image. This region is dominated by a major depression centred near the south pole, resulting in shadowed areas.
