Moon View from Apollo 8

Apollo 8 Moon View
This is a near vertical photograph of the lunar surface taken with a telephoto lens during the Apollo 8 lunar orbit mission.  The area covered by the photograph is approximately 20 miles on a side, and the photographed area is located at about 3 degrees south latitude and 160 degrees west longitude on the lunar farside.  The lunar surface probably has less pronounced color than indicated by this print.
