Description

Hello Friends,

this image is dedicated to my friend John Favalessa, who has asked in the comments of my last Lunar image, to image the Apollo landing zone. Today the landing area of Apollo 15 mission was nicely illumined, so I decided to fulfill his wish with Apollo 15.

This image is exactly bridging the gab between my both images released before. The landing zone is between Mons Huygens and the Montes Caucasus in the Montes Apenninus. They had landed right in the upper north-east corner of Rima Hedley.

Please find more details about the mission here:

Please enjoy and many greetings John - hope you like it

Rüdiger
