East of Paracelsus


East of Paracelsus, a view from Apollo 15 (1971).

One of a number of photographs from the Apollo missions being taken out of cold storage in Arizona and scanned at very high resolution, should you need a 1.3 GB image of the lunar surface. I was totally obsessed with the Apollo missions when I was a kid so I’m looking forward to more of this kind of imagery, especially at super-high res.

For other Moon pictures, Flickr is gradually accumulating shots of this week’s lunar eclipse.
