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).
