Selenography


noun

The study of the physical features of the Moon.
[American Heritage Dictionary]
--------------
Thus, it is not correct to say Lunar geography, as Geo is the Greek prefix to Earth, while Selene is the Greek prefix to Moon. The same is valid to geology/selenology, for example. Part of the text downloaded from Wikipedia had to be edited.
