I found the Apollo 17 landing site (with a lot of help from Google Moon where it is marked - the different illumination conditions still make it challenging).

I didn't know about Google Moon. That helped me to find the Apollo 17 site also. You can see the rover tracks but that's about the limit of resolution unfortunately.

A quick way to find all the Apollo sites:

click on "Overlays" icon
click on "expand" button on "LROC Featured Images"
click on "Search" tab
enter: apollo
click on "Find"

2017.10.18.NASA.moon.quickmap.png


hovering over search result items will result in the sites being identified by green edged white circle

Selecting the "check box" pointed to by the blueish arrow will add a bunch of orange dots to the map.
Clicking on one of the orange dots with take you to a web page devoted to that site.
Example: Question Answered!

Some of the orange dot web site pages provide higher resolution images.
For instance: The Apollo 13 SIVB Impact

I can't see it on the "Quickmap" app.

ps. This is SWEET! Thanks, Dave!
pps. And there goes the rest of my day.

you are welcome :smile:

haha yup, I can see I'm going to send hours on there too looking at all sorts of stuff :rolleyes:


Whoa... I can see the Apollo 11 landing module!
I did have a quick look in the area, but didn't see it, will have to use Om's suggested site to better define the area

Thanks to Om, now knowing where to look, I can even see the shadow it casts ... AWESOME!!
