The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) successfully produced stereo movies (3 dimensional movies) of the Moon's surface by using stereoscopic images obtained with the Terrain Camera (TC) onboard the KAGUYA just prior to its controlled impact to the Moon on June 11, 2009 (JST). The KAGUYA was launched by JAXA on September 14, 2007.

The image was obtained using TC cameras of the satellite about 10 minutes prior to the KAGUYA's controlled impact on the Moon. Observation location was between Drygalski and Ashbrook (S83 E260), and the satellite altitude was about 18.5km.
