The Moon from Mariner 10
Mariner 10 took the images for this mosaic of the Moon on November 5, 1973, two days after launch. The photo covers the easternmost part of the nearside as well as part of the farside, including Tsiolkovskiy crater and Mare Moscoviense.

Six images were mosaicked and reseaux painted out.
