Earth's Moon - Apollo 12

Apollo 12 landing site after the moonwalks

Earth's Moon
This view of the area outside the Apollo 12 lunar module was taken after completion of the two moonwalk EVA's by astronauts Conrad and Bean. The area shown is north-northwest of the lunar module. The deployed ALSEP (Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package) can be seen in the background right. Footprints and darkened trails left by the astronauts are clearly visible.
