Comparison of Apollo 15 to LROC images of the new crater
Comparison of Apollo 15 to LROC images of the new crater Comparisons of images from the Apollo Panoramic Camera and the LROC Narrow Angle Camera are revealing impact craters that have formed within the past 38 years. The Apollo image (AS15-9527) was taken in August 1971 with the sun 64° above the horizon. The LROC image (M108971316L) was taken September 30, 2009 when the sun was 72° above the horizon. Images taken under similar lighting conditions like these are the most useful for identifying and comparing surface features. NASA / GSFC / ASU
