Flying over Taurus-Littrow
(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

The LRO took many images of the Apollo 17 landing site at Taurus-Littrow. Here is a glorious oblique “spaceship-eye” view of the Sculptured Hills and massifs surrounding the landing site taken from from M1096343661R and L. The position of the Lunar Module is marked on the second image.

Two NAC images have been stitched together and the aspect ratio tweaked to around 4:1. (click image for larger version.)
