<p>Lunar map of 1854. This map of the Moon's surface was published in Germany, and the title across top in in German. The Moon is orientated with celestial North at bottom, and the surface is divided up by lines of latitude and longitude. Early astronomers, from the time of Galileo onwards, used their telescopes to draw lunar maps of increasing accuracy. The main features of such maps are the lowland maria (dark area), the surrounding highlands (white areas), and the impact craters and basins. It was not until space probes were launched in the 1960s that the far side of the Moon was seen for the first time.</p>
