Description

This data set consists of color positive 70-mm film from the Apollo 17 mission. The photography contains both orbital and surface frames. Orbital frames cover nearside and farside features, many of which are of probable volcanic origin, and farview photos of the moon during trans-earth insertion. The surface photography shows the various ALSEP instruments after deployment, surface rocks of all sizes, features in the vicinity of each of the EVA stops, the orange soil around shorty crater, and the rover and LM vehicles. The photography is generally very good although some frames are overexposed and some frames are light-struck.
