Selene is the Greek moon goddess. She is the daughter of the Titans Hyperion and Theia, and sister of the sun-god Helios and Eos, goddess of the dawn. Selene is associated with Artemis and Hecate, and all were regarded as lunar goddesses, although only Selene was regarded as the personification of the moon itself. The name Selene is likely derived from selas (σέλας), meaning "light". Her Roman equivalent is Luna.

In December 1849, John Whipple made his first photograph of the moon, a daguerreotype taken through the telescope at the Harvard College Observatory in Cambridge.  Although he did not make the first lunar photograph in America, in terms of accuracy and aesthetics Whipple produced what were internationally recognized as the most sublime photographs of the moon.
