Characterizing dust plumes on the moons surface during a rocket landing is imperative to the success of future operations on the moon or any other celestial body with a dusty or soil surface including cold surfaces covered by frozen gas ice crystals, such as the moons of the outer planets. The most practical method of characterizing the dust clouds is to analyze video or still camera images of the dust illuminated by the sun or on-board light sources such as lasers. The method described below was used to characterize the dust plumes from the Apollo 12 landing.
