Submission + - GRAIL Mission Video Released (gizmag.com)

SchrodingerZ writes: "A new video was released today by NASA from the GRAIL mission probes, which ended their mission last month, as they impacted the lunar surface. 'Dramatic' footage was captured by the probe Ebb on December 14th. The video was taken from the 'MoonKAM (Moon Knowledge Acquired by Middle school Students) cameras, it shows the view of Ebb flying at an altitude of 6 miles (10 km) above the Moon’s northern hemisphere in the vicinity of Jackson crater (22.4N 163.1W).' Two videos were released, one from the fore and one from the aft of the probe, showing a forwards and backwards time lapse containing 931 and 1,489 pictures each of the lunar terrain. The footage was part of the probes final systems check before they shut down and were sent into a controlled impact to a predetermined location."
