I've decided to start a new thread dedicated to the Apollo program, and I shall start the ball rolling by posting an assortment of mosaics and other images that I have been working on during the past few months.

LM ASCENT MOSAICS:

Turtle Rock and Station H are clearly visible, as are the tracks leading up to the ALSEP. Compare to the lunar orbiter view:

Chris Riley ("In The Shadow Of The Moon") has a new site where you can find (and purchase, if you want to) lots of space exploration clips. Here's one of Jack Schmitt with his visor up...

Here is an attempt to get the best of both film formats available to the Apollo 12 view of the eclipse of the Sun by Earth On November 24, 1969 as Apollo 12 was returning from the second Lunar expedition. Only 16 mm color film (reversal?) and B&W 70 mm film was available to record the scene, well supplimented by the excellent descriptions given by Alan Bean and the others at the time. Bean has since painted his recalled visual impressions.
The B&W frame supplies the resolution, the 16mm, plus the descriptions of the astronauts, the colors. Note the pair of 'Sun reflections', which provide images of the solar disks themselves. The oval one on the left is from the color 16mm frame made while the Sun was still partly visable but quite distorted, the linear right reflection is from the high resolution 70mm frame, shot as the Sun was physically hidden but strongly refracted by the atmosphere. I hope to later obtain better scans of the 16mm film of varying exposures. The color frame I used as an element in this composite image, heavily repainted to fill in details described at the time but not visible in the photography, originated in a scan included in the Apollo image archive.

Really cool Don!

Did you see Bean's painting of the earth completely in eclipse? Moon reflecting off the water, belts of lighting around the equator... Something else to bend your talents to.

>Really cool Don!

Thanks!

>Did you see Bean's painting of the earth completely in eclipse?

Yes, they are shown in links in this page:

http://www.alanbeangallery.com/eclipse.html

Useful suppliments to the photography, although the transcript of the actual observations tend to hold the most weight with me as a primary source. I would like to obtain a satellite map of the clouds that day before trying to reconstruct the view. Where mightI find one?
