26. Apollo 16 site: Earth-based telescopic view
The arrow points to the landing site in the densely cratered southern highlands. Apollo 16 was the only mission to a highland area not directly adjacent to the mare. The two large craters near the middle of the lower margin are Theophilus and Cyrillus. Ejecta from the younger Theophilus Crater may be present in the area of the landing site.
