Lunar Footprint Coverage Explorer kmz files load onto Earth, not Moon

Recommended Posts

Hi, first this service is very impressive.


I downloaded 3 different kmz files from the LFCE pages. They all opened fine. They just loaded their mapping data onto the Earth.




I don't know if maybe somehow this could have to do with my computer being a Linux system. I can't think of another explanation.
