23. Apollo 15 site: High resolution vertical view
The landing site was selected so that, with the aid of the Lunar Roving Vehicle, astronauts Dave Scott and Jim Irwin could examine the Apennine Front at Hadley Delta, the eastern rim of Hadley Rille, and two prominent groups of craters on the mare surface. The southern group of craters, South Cluster, is a concentration of secondary craters while the northern group, North Complex, is interpreted to be of possible volcanic origin. Unfortunately, time constraints kept the crew from being able to visit the North Complex.
