NASA has identified 13 regions near the Moon's South Pole as candidate landing regions for Artemis III, the first crewed mission to the Moon's surface since 1972. The visuals here show the locations of all 13 regions.
In this visualization rendered using Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter data, the view moves from a full disk image of a waning gibbous Moon to a close view of the South Pole, eventually revealing 13 candidate landing regions for the Artemis III mission.
