TEMPE, AZ - As featured on "The List ," a little-known center in Tempe invites the public to watch as scientists analyze photos of the moon.
The LROC Science Operations Center , located on Arizona State University's campus, has no signs acknowledging it is open to the public.
Despite this, the Center encourages space enthusiasts to watch the scientists study hundreds of photos of the lunar surface, and they even offer guided tours.
The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) snaps black and white images of the lunar surface sending 600 to 1,000 photos to the center each day.
It specifically takes pictures of interesting features on the moon's surface for the scientists to analyze.
The center also has artifacts for people to examine, like a moon rock from the Apollo 15 mission.
