Apollo 14 site: Earth-based telescopic view

14. Apollo 14 site: Earth-based telescopic view

The arrow points to the landing site in the Fra Mauro Formation, interpreted to be ejecta from the impact that produced the Imbrium Basin (north of this photograph). The subdued and partially filled 80-kilometer-diameter crater below the landing site is Fra Mauro Crater. Bright rays from Copernicus Crater (north of this photograph) extend across the area surrounding the landing site, similar to the situation at the Apollo 12 site.
