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.

  1. This makes me think of the Apollo film, with the Eno soundtrack…

    Off topic: I’m working my way through Edmund White’s “Genet”. It’s quite the weighty tome! (“Chants d’Amour” got me on a Genet kick, and it’s been quite a while. I want to see what the adult me makes of it all!)

  2. Heh, I was thinking of Apollo too. Not seen that for years but the soundtrack gets played a lot here.

    I’ve not read the Genet biog, it’s one of those daunting doorstops I keep intending to get to eventually. I got a bit tired of White’s fiction (although his new one sounds good) but read a great couple of books he wrote about Paris recently so was thinking again I should give the Genet volume a chance. I’m usually more interested in people’s work than their lives but Genet’s life was something out of the ordinary, to say the least.
