Closer Look at Apollo Landing Sites

Hey Space Placers!

NASA has JUST released new photographs of selected Apollo landing sites obtained with the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) taken from a lower orbit. They are twice as detailed as those released in 2009. You can see greater detail in this photo of Apollo 17's landing site than in previous images.
