Example Video:

The blueprint takes information from the selected light to shade the moon with diffuse roughness, parallax occlusion mapping or displacement, and self shadowing. There is also a faked ambient occlusion fill light and bounce lighting in the craters. If an optional mask map is used the material will switch to a more complicated shader supporting specular, metalness and a grayscale emissive that can be tinted.

You can use any texture maps that conform to colour in RGB and height in alpha. Included free are 7 texture sets all at 8k resolution: Earth's moon from the latest Nasa maps, two procedurally generated generic moons; procedurally generated icy, volcanic and sandy moons; and the planet Mercury.
