12. Apollo 12 site: Enlargement of high resolution view
The landing site is next to the northern rim of 150-meter-diameter Surveyor Crater, named after the unmanned Surveyor 3 spacecraft that successfully soft-landed on the eastern rim of the crater in April 1967. Astronauts Pete Conrad and Alan Bean retrieved parts of the Surveyor spacecraft during their second EVA. Several of the adjacent craters were also visited by the crew during the EVAs.
