17. Apollo 14 site: High resolution vertical view
The sharp-rimmed crater in the lower right portion of the photograph is Cone Crater, one of the more recent impacts in this area. Cone Crater is on one of the ridges that compose the distinctive Fra Mauro Formation relief. A prime objective of the Apollo 14 mission was to sample Fra Mauro materials that were excavated by the Cone Crater impact.
