29. Apollo 16 site: High resolution vertical view
The bright rayed crater (lower left) is South Ray Crater; ejecta from this crater was sampled by astronauts John Young and Charles Duke during the second EVA, along with material from the lower slopes of nearby Stone Mountain (center of bottom margin), part of the Descartes Mountains. The pair of sharp-rimmed craters directly north of the landing site are Kiva (left) and North Ray (right) Craters. The crew visited the rim of North Ray Crater during the third EVA.
