Yutu rolling on the Moon
China's Yutu rover makes tracks on the surface of the Moon, taken on December 21, 2013. This sequence was taken from a television broadcast, aligned to correct for the motion of the camera, and its color adjusted.

Here is the video from which this sequence was taken.

The date of the video is suggested by the position of the Sun.
