In Full Moon, one of the best science photography books ever published, Michael Light presents a voyage in images to the Moon and back. Light took NASA's master negatives of photos taken by Apollo astronauts and scanned them electronically. The resulting pictures are so vivid they seem more clear than real life.

From there it travelled the world, and much of the exhibition found a permanent home in 2000 at the Rose Center For Earth and Space at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, where it may be seen to this day. Hundreds of thousands of copies have been printed.

From this selection of 'master' photographs Michael Light Full Moon is a photographic journey to the Moon and back, drawn from NASA's 32,000 pictures from the Apollo missions. For the first time NASA has allowed 900 of its 'master' negatives and transparencies to be taken offsite for electronic scanning so as to produce the sharpest images of space that we have ever seen.

The most thrilling of all journeys--the missions of the Apollo astronauts to the surface of the Moon and back--yielded 32,000 extraordinarily beautiful photographs, the record of a unique human achievement. Until recently, only a handful of these photographs had been released for publication; but now, for the first time, NASA has allowed a selection of the master negatives and transparencies to be scanned electronically, rendering the sharpest images of space that we have ever seen. Michael Light has woven 129 of these stunningly clear images into a single composite voyage, a narrative of breathtaking immediacy and authenticity that begins with the launch and is followed by a walk in space, an orbit of the Moon, a lunar landing and exploration, and a return to Earth with an orbit and splashdown.      Graced by five 45-inch-wide gatefolds that display the lunar landscape, from above the surface and at eye level, in unprecedented detail and clarity, Full Moon conveys on each page the excitement, disorientation, and awe that the astronauts themselves felt as they were shot into space and then as they explored an alien landscape and looked back at their home planet from hundreds of thousands of miles away. Published on the thirtieth anniversary of Apollo 11--the first landing on the Moon--this remarkable and mesmerizing volume is, like the voyages it commemorates and re-creates, an experience both intimate and monumental.

Stunning images that gave me a completely new perspective. The photo of the Lunar Module from 17, snapped about two miles away by Gene Cernan, blew my mind. (It's number 70-something I believe) The backdrop of mountains and the landscape in relation to the little spacecraft is eye-opening. People don't realize that there are peaks on the Moon that are taller than any here on Earth.

This collection of remastered snapshots is phenomenal, informative, and sometimes breathtaking.

I really wondered whether I could justify a book of photos of the Moon's surface, which, after all, had been done to death by NASA during the Moon landing years (we all really became a bit blasé about the whole business, forgetting what an astounding technical achievement it was for the time, with the "primitive" computers they had then). I'm glad I bought it - these are really spectacular views of that thing in the sky, of an extraordinary alien landscape. Once again, one realises what an adventure it all was. The science was there to confer a fig-leaf of respectability for what was essentially a capitalist v. communist weight-lifting contest, but it was still the giant leap of which Neil Armstrong spoke. We can dream (and perhaps that's all we ever can do) about other giant leaps in the future. In the meantime, we have this marvellous record of the very first.

This beautiful book is almost beyond words. If you are into the moon and/or the Apollo spacecraft missions to the moon, this book will WOW you. Incredible photographs, some fold out pages included. Each photograph as a detailed explanation in the back of the book, with a lot of information about the Apollo moon landings and the moon itself.

The only issue with this book is that the edge of the pages are black and fingerprints will be made on the edges unless you are very careful. A small issue with this amazing book. Buy it and enjoy!

This is a beautiful book. It is a series of photos from various Apollo missions, put together in a way to illustrate a voyage from Earth to the moon & back. The photos take up whole pages, or are panorama fold-outs. The photos are crystal clear. I have seen close-ups made from these photos before, but never the originals as are in Full Moon. That's when I realized the resolution of the cameras the Apollo astronauts were using was incredible.

My only disappointment was that my copy arrived with the dustjacket all scraped up and dented, and the edges of many of the pages were mangled, so I had to return it. The book still gets 5 stars because that is no fault of the publisher, or Michael Light. I'll buy it again when I can find a good copy at a "bricks & mortar" bookstore; it's worth the extra $$.

"Full Moon" is a selection of about one hundred pictures of different lunar american missions. The selection and the digital improvement has been made by Michael Light, and all has been done from an artistic perspective.
If you're looking for a very comprehensive lunar mission day-to-day, interviews with astronauts or a nice reproduction of "that" picture, this is not definitely your book.
But if you want, for a moment, walk on the moon, travel outside the Earth and dance with the stars, then buy it.

awesome book stunning moon images great coffee table book

The smaller sized book is very small, so just make sure you get the larger size for this incredible book.
I have been so curious about that big white thing in the sky at night and now, in my mid forties, with the help of this very nice book, I have finally figured it out. Truly stellar photos and reproduction.
