Surface view of the northern rim of Tycho

Earth's Moon
Surveyor 7 mosaic of the rim area of Tycho from the highland region north of the crater. Surveyor 7 landed 10 January 1969 at 40.88 S, 11.45 W and took about 21,000 photos over a month, some of which were used to make up this mosaic. The block in the foreground is about half a meter across and the crater is about 1.5 meters in diameter. The hills on the horizon are about 13 km away. (Surveyor 7, 68-H-40)
