Two views of the Apollo 17 landing site and the hill near Gardner

The Apollo 17 landing area before sunrise. The astronauts were never here at this time of day, but if they had been, they would have seen the tips of the peaks around them starting to shine with the beginnings of sunrise, while the earth shone high overhead in the night sky.

Here's another sketch I made of the same area, 7:45pm PDT 10/2/2000, showing the curiously smooth domelike hill near the crater Gardner (the small crater at the foot of the hill).
