Mineralogy map of Lacus Excellentiae on the Moon, showing the nominal SMART-1 impact orbit (central black line: orbit 2890) and possible impact location. The two adjecent orbits, 2889 and 2891, and their perilune locations are also indicated. Note that 1 degree of latitude corresponds to 30 km on the Moon, and that one arcsec from Earth subtends 1.8 km on the Moon centre.
