Kaguya

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).
