Astronaut next to a large boulder on the Moon

Earth's Moon
Apollo 14 commander Alan Shepard stands next to a large boulder near the Apollo landing site in the Fra Mauro region of the Moon. The boulder is probably a block of impact ejecta from a crater. Note the lunar dust clinging to Shepard's suit. This picture was taken by lunar module pilot Edgar Mitchell on 6 February 1971. (Apollo 14, AS14-68-9414)
