Eternally Lit Lunar Peaks - Universe Today
Since the Moon only has a slight tilt, some of its mountains are bathed in eternal sunlight, and would make ideal places to put solar panels to power a future moon base. The European Space Agency's SMART-1 spacecraft is currently mapping the Moon, and one its missions is to identify some of these peaks of eternal light. These peaks could also provide a very stable environment, always approximately 20-degrees below zero Celsius. There are probably also craters in the region which are in eternal shadow, and could contain water ice.
