The Japanese lunar orbiter
Kaguya (also known as Selene) was
successfully launched on September 14, 2007
and entered its nominal 100 km circular
orbit on October 19, 2007. Acquisition of
scientific data was carried out for 10
months of nominal mission that began in
mid-December 2007 followed by an 8-month
extended mission. The Kaguya spacecraft
impacted the Moon on June 10, 2009.
Data are archived at
JAXA. The mission is described
in Kato et al. 2010 (doi:10.1007/s11214-010-9678-3).
