Scientists have discovered these wrinkle ridges in a region of the Moon called Mare Frigoris. These ridges add to evidence that the Moon has an actively changing surface. This image was taken by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO).

The LRO project is managed by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, on behalf of NASA's Science Mission Directorate.
