B/W Metric Camera Terminator 5- by 5-In. Photos

NSSDCA ID: PSPG-00204

Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Time span: 1971-07-31 to 1971-08-03

Description

This data set consists of photographs of near-terminator areas extracted from the original complete photography from the metric (mapping) camera and combined into one roll of black and white film. These photos show lunar terrain in strong relief owing to the very low sun angles as the terminator (sunrise and sunset line) is approached. Lava flows and low ridges and depressions are visible, and the Aristarchus area can be seen in bold relief. Other areas are on the LM landing site near the Hadley Rille, the Apennine mountains, Archimedes and its nearby rilles, Plinius and its rilles, Dawes on the frontside of the moon, and Tsiolkovksy and the surrounding area on the farside.
