Anaglyphs in the image libraries created from sequential panorama frames by the ALSJ editor exist only because of Yuri Krasilnikov's willingness to teach me the art. Whatever value the anaglyphs have is due to Yuri's insights and guidance. Flaws are my doing. Briefly, panorama stitching software Hugin is used to create both non-stereo pan assemblies and remapped versions of the images. The latter are then made into anaglyphs using GIMP. The individual remapped images are linked from the corresponding Library entries for the original frames. The remapped images can be used to create stereo views using other methods.


For those interested in the subject of Apollo Photography and the Color of the Moon, see a brief discussion written for the ALSJ by Michael Light.


Journal Contributor Paul White has made detailed comparisons of cloud patterns seen in a large number of Apollo images with imagery taken at close to the same time by various meteorlogical satellites.


This Apollo 15 Image Library contains all of the pictures taken on the lunar surface by the astronauts together with pictures from pre-flight training and pictures of equipment and the flight hardware. High-resolution version of many of the lunar surface images are included. A source for both thumbnail and low -resolution versions of the lunar surface images is a website compiled by Paul Spudis and colleagues at the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston.

Red-Blue Anaglyph of the ALSEP, LM, LRV (0.3 Mb

Patrick Vantuyne has combined M119829425L and M119822622L. The separation exaggerates crater depths. In a black-and-white detail from Dave's color SEVA pan, Index Crater in the foreground to the right of up-Sun. The pan was taken starting at about 106:58:27, which was about 0033 UTC on 31 July 1971. At that time, the solar elevation and azimuth were 13.1 and 96.6. The eastern rim of the crater did not cast a shadow at that time, indicating that the inner eastern wall is shallower than 13.1 degrees. Another LROC image, M131623862L, was taken 2156 UTC on 19 June 2010 when the solar elevation was 8.4 degrees. At that time, the eastern half of the crater was nearly filled with shadow, indicating that the inner slope is close to 8.4 degrees. Note that the western rims of some of the small, sharp-rimmed craters within the eastern half of Index are sun lit, another indication that the solar elevation is close to the inner slope.

Rev. 38 Pan Camera Frame 9798, LM Detail ( 346k )
Stephen Tellier scanned a portion of Pan Camera frame 9798, which was taken during CSM Rev 38 at about 151:37. At that time, Dave and Jim were in the LM after the completion of EVA-2. A prominent feature of this image is the darkening of the soil around the LM and along a corridor extending from the LM toward 11 o'clock. See a comparison with frame 9377 by Markus Mehring, who has processed the images to account for differing orientations, different scales due to differing CSM-LM ranges, and different foreshortening due to differing CSM elevation angles. As Jack Schmitt discusses in the Apollo 17 commentary, the surface around the LM became brighter after being swept by the descent engine exhaust. As can be seen in photos taken on the surface, areas subsequently disturbed by the astronauts became relatively dark again. At locations relatively far from the LM, disturbed soil had the same brightness as undisturbed soil, another indication of brightening due to the engine exhaust.
Rev. 50 Pan Camera 9809, North Detail ( 332k )
This detail from Pan Camera frame 9809 was taken during CSM Rev 50 at a Ground Elapsed Time of about 175:30, two revs after LM liftoff. It shows the area from the LM in the north to Arbeit Crater in the south and from the eastern rim of Hadley Rille in the west to Luke Crater in the east. Compare a detail showing the area around the LM with similar details from the earlier pan camera frames. The immediate area around the spacecraft has been swept by engine exhaust for a second time; insulation from the descent stage was scattered around the area following staging and ignition; and there is no Ascent stage to cast a shadow.

Selene/Kaguya Image of the Landing Site ( 60k )
As can be seen from the shadows in the craters, this image was taken with the Sun low in the west. Researchers at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) present a version ( 33k ) with a realtively bright area near the known location of the LM outlined in red. The LM landed on the northwest rim of a shallow crater. A comparison ( 152k ) between a detail from Apollo 15 Pan Camera frame 9377 and the Selene/Kaguya image shows that, in the Apollo image, the western portion of the crater interior is bright while in the Selene/Kaguya image, the eastern portion is bright. It seems likely that this difference is due to illumination from the east in the case of the Apollo image and from the west in the case of the Selene/Kaguya image. In both images, the sunlit portion of the crater interior is brighter than other shallow craters in the area, suggesting that the surface layer throughout the crater was brightened by the LM engine exhaust and that the apparent degree of brightening depends on sun angle.
Pre-Flight Site Sketch ( 216k )
This pre-flight sketch shows the site from the viewpoint of an observer at an altitude of a few thousand feet above a point well north of the planned landing spot. Note that, for each of the traverses, there are broad target areas where specific sampling sites are to be picked in real-time by the crew. For example, on EVA-1, two stops were planned on the lower slopes of Mt. Hadley Delta but with Station 2 only being loosely defined as being in the western part of the hand-drawn ellipse and Station 3 being at the west end. Similarly, on EVA-3, the exact locations of Stations 9, 10 and 11 were going to be determined by the crew once they got to the edge of Hadley Rille. Scan by David Harland.

Falcon Crew and Corvettes ( 161k or 735k )
Jim Irwin (left), Al Worden, and Dave Scott pose with their color-coded Corvettes and, in the foreground, the 1-g LRV trainer. As with the stylized birds on the Apollo 15 patch, the cars are red, white, and dark blue. See a discussion of the car colors and the patch below. From the 11 June 1971 issue of Life Magzine. In a 2005 e-mail, Dave Scott notes "As I recall, this particular photo of the corvettes was taken out by the launch pad. The corvettes were stylized to essentially show the flag and set a bit of unit pride ...primarily to let the troops know that we were about and paying attention to all they were doing; e.g., at almost any level of the launch complex one could look down and recognize the crew's cars; we went to the pad often for various spacecraft activities as well as to just say hello to the folks putting the Saturn V and its payload together. Awareness, you know, something like the MFAP (Manned Flight Awareness Program, which awarded Snoopy pins to Apollo people who make special contributions. But promoting GM we were not; to own a car at the Cape was much more effective for us and less expensive to NASA than renting a car. Besides, they were fun to drive. I finally sold mine to Ed Fendell who I understand drove it many miles over many years." Scan by Ed Hengeveld, combining a scan of the cropped photograph as published and a scan of the distant vegitation and sky from whole-frame copy provided by Al Worden via Al Hallonquist. Hengeveld writes "However, the overall quality was poorer than the published Life photo, so I PhotoShopped the two together, pasting the background into my Life scan. The seam is a line in the sand behind the astronauts, just in front of the bushes. I did not keep the poorer 'Al Worden' scan.

The Apollo 15 Mission patch. 3 May 1971. Scan by J. L. Pickering. For a detailed discussion of this and other mission patches, see Gene's Dorr's excellent Space Mission Patch website and Dick Lattimer's book, All We Did Was Fly to the Moon". In the latter, Al Worden provides the following: "The mission patch for Apollo 15 was basically designed by the Italian dress designer, Emilio Pucci. We had as a crew evaluated some 540 different designs for our crew patch. They appeared either too mechanical or to have nothing to do with the flight, so finally, through a mutual friend, we asked Pucci if he would help us with the design. Now, Pucci, as I best recall, was an aeronautical engineer and had a good feeling for flight. With his artistic nature, we felt that he would be very helpful in the patch design. He did send us a design which was basically the same as the patch we eventually used, however the colors were in the normal Pucci blues, purples, and greens. We took his design, changed it from a square to a circular patch, made it red, white and blue, and put a lunar background behind the three stylized birds that were the major Pucci contribution. The symbology is of three stylized birds flying over the lunar surface, each indicating one of us who were on the flight. The lunar surface behind the patch shows the landing site (next to Hadley Rille at the foot of the Appenine Mountains) and directly behind the stylized birds is a crater formation that spells '15' in Roman numerals (XV). You can also see from the stylized birds that they fly in formation with one on top and two closer to the lunar surface, indicating those who actually landed." As can be seen in a Life Magazine photograph of the crew in their color-coded Corvettes, Al's car is the same color - white - as his patch symbol.

Mission Photos by Magazine Number

Magazine 81/QQ (B&W) Frames 10869-11046

Some images are currently available only as low-resolution scans provided by NASA Johnson in the mid-1990s. The individual scans have TARGA filenames. Markus Mehring has compiled cross-references between those filenames and the NASA photo ID designations customarily used. Other images are available as higher resolution scans from prints and, unless otherwise credited, were provided by Kipp Teague. Beginning in 2004, NASA began to provide scans from original film and, as they become available to the ALSJ, we are using them to replace all prior versions. These are presented at 300 dpi equivalent and are labeled "OF300".
Ed Hengeveld has provided a set of thumbnails images ( 1 Mb ) made from low-resolution scans provided by Glen Swanson of NASA Johnson.

Magazine 81 was used in lunar orbit during Revs 61, 62, 63, and 69 with a 500-mm lens.

AS15-82-11065 (OF300) ( 180k or 931k )
164:53:35 In compiling this list of photocaptions, I relied heavily on the work of Bailey and Ulrich published in Apollo 15 Voice Transcript Pertaining to the Geology of the Landing Site and have had few disagreements with their association of particular photographs with particular parts of the dialog. However, in the case of this picture, I do not agree with their suggestion that it was taken at 165:00:10. My reason for thinking that it was taken at about 164:53:44 is that, at that time, Dave and Jim stop to take a look at a rock and Dave says he's "getting it", meaning a picture. 11065 is certainly taken from Dave's side of the Rover. Jim's camera is jammed. Notice, also, the small, fresh crater at the left side which has produced a significant amount of regolith breccia.
AS15-82-11066 (OF300) ( 128k or 786k )
165:05:09 Dave begins a pan at Station 9 with this down-Sun picture. He is standing on the north rim of a 15-m diameter crater.

Rightward of 11066, centered on Hill 305 and showing the blocky ejecta surrounding the very fresh crater. As at Apollo 17's Van Serg Crater, the ejecta here is almost all blocks of regolith (soil) compressed in the impact that dug the crater. The formal term for this compressed material is "regolith breccia". The informal term is "instant rock".

Jim has moved north of the largest Station 10 boulder to take this down-Sun of another large rock north of it.
AS15-82-11188 (OF300) ( 189k or 967k )
Jim moved a few steps to his right to shoot this cross-Sun over another Station 10 boulder. Note the rock that is in the background is in both 11187 and 11188.
AS15-82-11189 (OF300) ( 240k or 1167k )
Jim moves to a spot ESE of the boulder that was in the foreground in 11187 and shoots this picture north across the boulder that was in the foreground in 11188.
AS15-82-11190 (OF300) ( 255k or 1200k )
Jim steps back and to his left and gets both the 11187 and 11189 boulders in this shot toward the NNE.
AS15-82-11191 (OF300) ( 73k or 473k )
Jim is on the Rover at Station 10. A number of rocks in this picture can also be seen in AS15-82-11167, which is part of his Station 10 pan. For example, in 11167, there is an elongated rock with a relatively bright sunlit face above Dave's right hand at shoulder level. In 11191, that rock is near the fiducial one right and one below center.
AS15-82-11192 (OF300) ( 153k or 928k )
166:40:39 Jim took this picture from the Rover as they approached the LM at the end of EVA-3. According to the photo catalog, these pictures were taken near Wolverine Crater.
AS15-82-11193 (OF300) ( 160k or 959k )
166:41:26 At Jim's request, Dave has turned slightly to the right to better center the LM in the picture.
AS15-82-11194 (OF300) ( 127k or 876k )
166:41:26 Similar to 11193. This frame from Jim's Station 10 pan shows the in-bound Rover tracks coming in from the right, with the fully-lit western face Mt. Hadley in the distance.
AS15-82-11195 (OF300) ( 145k or 899k )
166:42:42 They have moved closer to the LM. Note that the Rover tracks visible in this picture are not as dark as the ones photographed closer to the LM at the ALSEP site. Silver Spur is at the right.

Once again the camera returns to Dave Scott.


AS15-82-11196 (OF300) ( 150k or 721k )
166:48:58 Dave took a series of picture to show dust on the Rover. This first frame shows the front of the vehicle from the left side. Note that the TV camera is pointed down. We can see Jim on the far side. Note that the center of the image is partly obscured, undoubtedly because of a dust smudge on the lens.
AS15-82-11197 (OF300) ( 95k or 489k )
Dave steps to his right to get this picture of footrests, the footpan, and the bottom of the console.
AS15-82-11198 (OF300) ( 111k or 548k )
Dave steps to his right to get this picture of the seat area. Jim has rested the multiple section of the deep core on his seat. This photo gives us an excellent view of the switches, switch guards, and circuit breakers on the Rover console. Note that Dave has hung his seat belt on the low-gain antenna mast support. The BSLSS bag is hanging behind Dave's seat.
AS15-82-11199 (OF300) ( 173k or 818k )
166:48:58 This picture shows the right rear wheel and the right rear of the Rover from the back. Dust-covered Rover parked at the LM at the end of EVA-3. The central area of the image is partially obscured by dust on the camera lens. Note that there are some scratches on the top of the right rear fender perhaps the result of the fender extension being pulled out during Rover deployment and scraping on the main fender.
AS15-82-11200 (OF300) ( 222k or 1080k )
166:48:58 Dave took this picture of the righthand side of the Rover from the back, looking forward. Note that there are considerable buildups of dust on the chassis next to the wheel and on the inside of the hub. Forward of the seats, we can read the face of the console and can see the switches and switch guards quite clearly. Note that only some of the switches and breakers are guarded.
AS15-82-11201 (OF300) ( 176k or 861k )
Dave moved forward to get this picture of Jim's footpan and the multiple core stem on Jim's seat. We can see more detail on the instrument panel, even though the lettering is not as easy to read. Note that Jim's gloves are very dirty. The ALSEP is visible in the background.
AS15-82-11202 (OF300) ( 165k or 871k )
Dave moved up to the right front wheel to get this picture showing dust on the inside of the hub.
AS15-82-11203 (OF300) ( 164k or 780k )
This picture shows us details on the front of the Rover, including the battery covers, the uncovered LCRU mirrors, the TCU, and tread on the left front tire. Note the cable from the low-gain antenna coming into view on the left and going around the TCU to the LCRU. Both the low-gain and high-gain antennas were connected to the LCRU on the righthand side (as seen from the seats) of the LCRU.

The remaining frames were taken through the windows after the end of EVA-3.


AS15-82-11204 (OF300) ( 113k or 807k )
Post-EVA-3, 500-mm photo of the North Complex. This starts a very good series of photographs. (See AS15-90-12249 for a second series).

Magazine 84/MM (B&W) Frames 11235-11352

Unless otherwise noted, all images processed by Kipp Teague from raw scans provided by NASA Johnson. Images labeled "OF300" are from the original film and are presented at the equivalent of 300 DPI on an 7.5 inch by 7.5 inch reproduction.
Ed Hengeveld has provided a set of thumbnails images ( 1 Mb ) made from low-resolution scans provided by Glen Swanson of NASA Johnson.

Magazine 84 was used with a 500-mm lens during the SEVA, EVA-1, EVA-2 and in lunar orbit after rendezvous.


AS15-84-11235 (OF300) ( 130k or 979k )
106:56:25 During the SEVA, Dave took a series of photos with the 500-mm lens. This first photo shows a small, bright crater on the east rim of St. George Crater.
AS15-84-11236 (OF300) ( 183k or 1175k )
Similar to 11235.
AS15-84-11237 (OF300) ( 160k or 1130k )
Contour Crater on the northern slope of Mt. Hadley Delta.
AS15-84-11238 (OF300) ( 41k or 438k )
106:56:54 500-mm portrait of Bennett Hill.
AS15-84-11239 (OF300) ( 72k or 794k )
106:56:54 Frame from Dave's 500-mm portrait of Hill 305.
AS15-84-11240 (OF300) ( 71k or 755k )
106:56:54 Frame from Dave's 500-mm portrait of Hill 305.
AS15-84-11241 (OF300) ( 65k or 660k )
106:56:54 Frame from Dave's 500-mm portrait of Hill 305.
AS15-84-11242 (OF300) ( 118k or 1074k )
106:56:54 This first frame in Dave's 500-mm SEVA coverage of the North Complex shows Pluton Crater and, above it, Eaglecrest Crater. This is one of the few 500-mm images that Dave took without the camera being perfectly steady. I have used FocusMagic in an atttempt to deblur the image. Four-pixel deblurring ( 272k ) along a line 50 degrees counterclockwise from vertical seems to work best.
AS15-84-11243 (OF300) ( 113k or 1079k )
106:56:54 Rightward of 11242, showing more of Pluton.
AS15-84-11244 (OF300) ( 103k or 989k )
106:56:54 Dave shifted his aim farther to the west to take a series of pictures of Chain Crater.
AS15-84-11245 (OF300) ( 112k or 1011k )
106:56:54 Rightward of 11244 with only slight overlap.
AS15-84-11246 (OF300) ( 82k or 962k )
106:56:54 Leftward of 11244.
AS15-84-11247 (OF300) ( 101k or 956k )
106:57:25 500-mm shot of the western base of Mt Hadley, the part nearest the North Complex. Most of the mountain is in deep shadow.
AS15-84-11248 (OF300) ( 101k or 1050k )
106:57:25 500-mm shot of the western base of Mt Hadley, leftward of 11247.
AS15-84-11249 (OF300) ( 90k or 904k )
106:57:25 500-mm shot of the western base of Mt Hadley, rightward of 11247.
AS15-84-11250 (OF300) ( 134k 1083k )
Dave took this 500-mm picture of Silver Spur during the SEVA at about 106:58:07. Silver Spur is named for Caltech geologist Lee Silver, who showed Dave and Jim that field geology could be exciting. See Don Wilhelm's excellent book To a Rocky Moon. Note that there appear to be two systems of lineations in Silver Spur. One set consists of what appear to be about ten thick beds which appear to dip down from right to left as seen from the LM. As discussed in the Apollo 15 Preliminary Science Report, this set of lineations may well represent real structure in the mountain. The second set of lineations consists of closely-spaced, nearly horizontal lines. These may be lighting artifacts.
AS15-84-11251 (OF300) ( 102k or 1033k )
106:57:25 500-mm shot rightward of 11250, showing the east flank of Mt. Hadley Delta.
AS15-84-11252 (OF300) ( 92k or 969k )
106:57:25 500-mm shot rightward of 11251, showing the east flank of Mt. Hadley Delta. A detail shows a rather spectacular bit of what might be called 'scanner fluff' or 'scanner dust'.
AS15-84-11253 (OF300) ( 108k or 1037k )
106:57:25 500-mm shot rightward of 11252, showing the east flank of Mt. Hadley Delta.

The following frames were taken by Dave Scott at Station 2, during EVA-1.


AS15-84-11254 (OF300) ( 103k or 908k )
123:19:35 Dave took a series of 500-mm photos from Station 2 on the northern flank of Hadley Delta below St. George Crater. He began with a series of images taken along a horizontal strip of the far rille wall south of Trophy Point. Note the rocks just below and to the right of center.
AS15-84-11255 (OF300) ( 91k or 914k )
123:19:35 Rightward from 11254. The rocks noted in the previous frame are below center near the left edge.
AS15-84-11256 (OF300) ( 107k or 1007k )
123:19:35 Rightward from 11255 with good overlap. Hill 305 is in the distance.
AS15-84-11257 (OF300) ( 130k or 1094k )
123:19:35 Rightward from 11256 with good overlap. Note the apparent layering in the formation just below center on the right. The mare surface is believed to have been built up in a series of relatively thin lava flows with some impact 'weathering' of each fresh surface before the next flow. A cross-section would show a series of thin, horizontal layers. See a detail from 11258, below.
AS15-84-11258 (OF300) ( 145k or 1133k )
123:19:35 Rightward from 11257 with good overlap. The layered formation is just to the right and below center and is shown in a detail ( 148k ).
AS15-84-11259 (OF300) ( 153k or 1190k )
123:19:35 Rightward from 11258 with good overlap. Dave was not holding the camera level when he took this picture and, consequently, neither the layering in the outcrop (left of center) nor the surface of the mare beyond are horizontal but dip down to the left. However, the layering is approaximately parallel to the mare surface. The azimuth of the blocky-rimmed crater on the mare surface on the far side of the rille can be estimated to be about 306 degrees, using frame AS15-85-11447 from Jim's second pan and azimuths of 274 for Jim's shadow and 312 for the summit of Hill 305. A tentative identification is made in a labeled detail ( 0.8 Mb ) from Pan Camera frame 9377. The estimated azimuth from Station 2 of 306 degrees is indicated by the diagonal line and an estimated angular crater diameter of 3.5 degrees is consistent between views in 11259, 11447, and 9377.
AS15-84-11260 (OF300) ( 144k or 1152k )
123:19:35 Rightward from 11259 with good overlap. Note the blocky ejecta around a sizeable crater on the mare surface above and to the left of center. As can be seen in frame AS15-85-11423 from Jim's first Station 2 pan, this crater is about its own angular diameter to the left of the azimuth to the summit of Hill 305. A detail from Pan Camera frame AS-9377 ( 289k ) helps establish that this is Crook Crater, which Joe Allen and the crew named before the mission.
AS15-84-11261 (OF300) ( 153k or 1188k )
123:19:35 Rightward from 11260 with good overlap.
AS15-84-11262 (OF300) ( 142k or 1164k )
123:19:35 Rightward from 11261 with good overlap.
AS15-84-11263 (OF300) ( 125k or 1104k )
123:19:35 Rightward from 11262 with good overlap.
AS15-84-11264 (OF300) ( 128k or 1133k )
123:19:35 Rightward from 11263 with good overlap.
AS15-84-11265 (OF300) ( 115k or 1094k )
123:19:35 Rightward from 11264 with good overlap.
AS15-84-11266 (OF300) ( 110k or 1075k )
123:19:35 Rightward from 11265 with good overlap.
AS15-84-11267 (OF300) ( 115k or 1095k )
123:19:35 Rightward from 11266 with good overlap.
AS15-84-11268 (OF300) ( 130k or 1137k )
123:19:35 Rightward from 11267 with good overlap.
AS15-84-11269 (OF300) ( 144k or 1144k )
123:20:51 For this frame, Dave has pointed the camera at virtually the same spot he photographed in 11259 in order to start a second horizontal strip. Note the relatively large rock near the fiducial mark one left and one below the center with apparent vertical jointing overlain by horizontal layering.
AS15-84-11270 (OF300) ( 151k or 1171k )
Leftward of 11269 with good overlap.
AS15-84-11271 (OF300) ( 158k or 1169k )
Rightward of 11270 and leftward of 11269.
AS15-84-11272 (OF300) ( 155k or 1155k )
Rightward of 11271 with overlap.
AS15-84-11273 (OF300) ( 152k or 1154k )
Rightward of 11272 with overlap, showing pretty much the same area shown in 11261 except that, in the present picture, he is aimed a bit farther downslope.
AS15-84-11274 (OF300) ( 143k or 1144k )
Rightward of 11273 with good overlap.
AS15-84-11275 (OF300) ( 139k or 1134k )
Rightward of 11274 with good overlap.
AS15-84-11276 (OF300) ( 124k or 1078k )
123:20:06 First frame in a vertical strip of 500-mm shots of Trophy Point that Dave took from Station 2. A detail shows the 'very interesting outcrop over there, which looks like vertical jointing in a big block with a horizontal layer on the top'. He photographed this area previously in 11272, now aiming a little higher to show a portion of Hill 305 and, in the middle distance a large crater on the mare surface. Note the large number of rocks on the crater rim.
AS15-84-11277 (OF300) ( 141k or 1136k )
123:20:06 Slightly lower than 11276, with considerable overlap.
AS15-84-11278 (OF300) ( 159k or 1169k )
123:20:06 Lower than 11277, but with considerable overlap.
AS15-84-11279 (OF300) ( 168k or 1184k )
123:20:06 Lower than 11278, but with considerable overlap.
AS15-84-11280 (OF300) ( 184k or 1274k )
123:20:06 Lower than 11279, but with considerable overlap.
AS15-84-11281 (OF300) ( 155k or 1159k )
123:20:06 Lower than 11280, but with considerable overlap.
AS15-84-11282 (OF300) ( 138k or 1151k )
123:20:06 Lower than 11281, with the near side of the rille coming in at the bottom.
AS15-84-11283 (OF300) ( 128k or 1139k )
123:20:06 Lower than 11282, with more of the near side of the rille at the bottom.
AS15-84-11284 (OF300) ( 163k or 1167k )
Dave took this 500-mm photo from Station 2 at about 123:03:12. It shows a portion of the rille wall below Trophy Point.
AS15-84-11285 (OF300) ( 151k or 1156k )
Rightward of 11284 with considerable overlap
AS15-84-11286 (OF300) ( 141k or 1117k )
Dave took this 500-mm photo from Station 2 at about 123:03:12. It shows a view along the bottom of he rille toward the north.
AS15-84-11287 (OF300) ( 171k or 1063k )
Dave took this 500-mm photo from Station 2 at about 123:03:12. It shows the bottom of the rille below Trophy Point but does not overlap 11286.
AS15-84-11288 (OF300) ( 132k or 820k )
Similar to 11287 and slightly to the right. This image is blurred by camera motion. Eric Nelson has produced a sharpened version with the motion blurring largely removed.
AS15-84-11289 (OF300) ( 41k or 412k )
Before climbing on the Rover, Dave took three 500-mm frames looking up Hadley Delta. This first frame shows a large boulder uphill from Station 2.
AS15-84-11290 (OF300) ( 97k or 1078k )
Mt. Hadley Delta from Station 2.
AS15-84-11291 (OF300) ( 85k or 911k )
123:21:27 Mt. Hadley Delta from Station 2. This is the last of the 500-mm frames that Dave takes at Station 2.

The following frames were taken by Dave Scott at Station 6, during EVA-2.


AS15-84-11292 (OF300) ( 207k or 1349k )
144:46:38 Dave has started a series of 500-mm photographs of Mt. Hadley taken at Station 6 on the flank of Mt. Hadley Delta. He begins with a sequence along the summit.
AS15-84-11293 (OF300) ( 155k or 1075k )
Mt. Hadley.
AS15-84-11294 (OF300) ( 188k or 1231k )
Mt. Hadley.
AS15-84-11295 (OF300) ( 215k or 1331k )
Mt. Hadley.
AS15-84-11296 (OF300) ( 204k or 1348k )
Mt. Hadley.
AS15-84-11297 (OF300) ( 176k or 1263k )
Mt. Hadley.
AS15-84-11298 (OF300) ( 167k or 1246k )
Mt. Hadley.
AS15-84-11299 (OF300) ( 138k or 1127k )
Mt. Hadley.
AS15-84-11300 (OF300) ( 118k or 1051k )
Mt. Hadley.
AS15-84-11301 (OF300) ( 96k or 995k )
This frame ends Dave's first sequence of pictures of the Mt. Hadley summit.
AS15-84-11302 (OF300) ( 218k or 1311k )
Dave has started a second sequence of pictures of the Mt. Hadley summit.
AS15-84-11303 (OF300) ( 250k or 1504k )
Mt. Hadley.
AS15-84-11304 (OF300) ( 263k or 1598k )
Mt. Hadley.
AS15-84-11305 (OF300) ( 258k or 1401k )
Mt. Hadley.
AS15-84-11306 (OF300) ( 242k or 1411k )
Mt. Hadley.
AS15-84-11307 (OF300) ( 198k or 1301k )
Mt. Hadley.
AS15-84-11308 (OF300) ( 148k or 1137k )
This frame ends Dave's second sequence of pictures of the Mt. Hadley summit.
AS15-84-11309 (OF300) ( 222k or 1422k )
144:47:51 This is the first in a vertical strip of 500mm images of Mt. Hadley taken by Dave Scott from Station 6. Two sets of linear features can be seen on the mountain: a set running diagonally down from the upper right to the lower left and a nearly horizontal set dipping down slightly to the left. The diagonal set is the more prominent when the mountain is viewed as a whole and these are believed to be due to lighting effects. The features in the horizontal set, when viewed from lunar orbit, appear to be benches that may have resulted from slumping on the steep mountain face. A full discussion can be found starting on page 5-11 in the Apollo 15 Preliminary Science Report.
AS15-84-11310 (OF300) ( 269k or 1564k )
144:47:51 Similar to 11309 but aimed slightly lower.
AS15-84-11311 (OF300) ( 306k or 1726k )

AS15-85-11417 (OF300) ( 188k or 912k )
122:15:25 Jim has moved a few steps to his right to take this second "before" photo of Station 1 sample 15065. Note the tongs in Dave's right hand and the black watch strap on his forearm.
AS15-85-11418 (OF300) ( 199k or 977k )
122:17:34 Jim's down-Sun "before" of the second Station 1 sample, with Dave at the right taking cross-Sun photo AS15-86-11533.
AS15-85-11419 (OF300) ( 186k or 990k )
122:17:37 Jim has raised his aim to show Hill 305 and other horizon features. These can be used to help pinpoint the sample locations and, consequently, the photo is called a "locator". Note that Dave is slightly out of focus, an indication that Jim changed focus for the "locator". The image is somewhat overexposed. More, importantly, by the time Jim took this picture, Dave had already picked up the sample, undoubtedly with the tongs attached to the yo-yo on his left hip. He has the sample in his right hand and may already be describing it to Houston.
AS15-85-11420 (OF300) ( 165k or 903k )
122:21:35 Jim's down-Sun "before" of the next Station 1 sample.
AS15-85-11421 (OF300) ( 132k or 894k )
122:21:35 Jim moved to his right to get this second down-Sun "before" of the next Station 1 sample. Note the spray of dust coming off the tongs that Dave has just stuck in the ground.
AS15-85-11422 (OF300) ( 192k or 904k )
122:38:47 First frame from Jim's first Station 2 Pan. Down-Sun view of the back of the Rover. On the lefthand side, Dave is getting a pair of tongs off the Rover. In a detail, we can see that the bottom of the gnomon bag is clearly not attached to the back of Dave's seat and we can see what appears to be a Velcro loop or strap intended for that purpose. The cylindrical object just aft of the tongs is the recording drum of the penetrometer. A second pair of tongs in mounted on the Hand Tool Carrier, with the rake behind those tongs. At the front of the Rover, we see the top of the console at center, with the 16 mm DAC to the right. Below the DAC, we see the radiator on the top of the television, an indication that the camera is still pointed down and aft.
AS15-85-11423 (OF300) ( 190k or 1091k )
122:38:47 Rightward of 11422. View over the right-rear Rover wheel to the far wall of the rille with Trophy Point on the right and Hill 305 in the distance.
AS15-85-11424 (OF300) ( 203k or 1123k )

AS15-85-11425 (OF300) ( 206k or 1150k )
122:38:47 Rightward of 11424, giving a spectacular view up the rille to the north. Note the fresh-raised-rim crater at the right side of the frame. This crater is southwest of Elbow and has a considerable amount of blocky ejecta around it. This crater can also be seen in pictures taken through the 500-mm lens from Stations 9 and 10. An example is AS15-89-AS15-89-12163.
AS15-85-11426 (OF300) ( 251k or 1299k )
122:38:47 Rightward of 11425, with the western portion of Elbow Crater on the right. Compare the now-sunlit lower slope of Mt. Hadley with a similar view from Dave's SEVA pan, such as AS15-85-11362.
AS15-85-11427 (OF300) ( 251k or 1303k )
122:38:47 Rightward of 11426, with most of Elbow Crater in view in the middle distance.
AS15-85-11428 (OF300) ( 257k or 1344k )
122:38:47 Rightward of 11427, showing the eastern half of Elbow Crater and, in the distance, the sunlit souther flank of Mt. Hadley.
AS15-85-11429 (OF300) ( 251k or 1365k )
122:38:47 Rightward of 11428, giving a view of the Swann Range - named for geologist Gordon Swann - and showing the in-bound Rover tracks on the far right.

122:38:47 Rightward of 11429, with a view of the Swann Range and the in-bound Rover tracks.
AS15-85-11431 (OF300) ( 161k or 1199k )
122:38:47 Rightward of 11430, with visible in the up-Sun direction except the inbound Rover tracks just to the left of center. The tracks can be traced farther back in the high-resolution version of the scan.
AS15-85-11432 (OF300) ( 211k or 1104k )
122:38:47 Rightward of 11431, cross-slope view of eastern Mt. Hadley Delta.
AS15-85-11433 (OF300) ( 232k or 1176k )
122:38:47 Rightward of 11432, view toward the summit of Mt. Hadley Delta. The near rim St. George Crater is out of sight beyond the apparent horizon on the right.
AS15-85-11434 (OF300) ( 244k or 1256k )
122:38:47 Rightward of 11433, with a view toward the near rim St. George Crater, which is out of sight beyond the apparent horizon.
AS15-85-11435 (OF300) ( 233k or 1197k )
122:38:47 Rightward of 11434, showing Dave Scott at the Station 2 boulder. The crater at his feet was undoubtedly made when the boulder was thrown onto the slope. He has both the gnomon and the tongs in his left hand.
AS15-85-11436 (OF300) ( 233k or 1197k )
122:38:47 Rightward of 11435. Dave has placed the gnomon next the boulder.
AS15-85-11437 (OF300) ( 173k or 942k )
122:38:47 Rightward of 11436. This frame from Jim's Station 2 pan shows Dave examining the Station 2 boulder. In the foreground, we can see the back of the Rover. Note the orientation of the high-gain antenna. Also, a comparison with 11422 indicates that, while taking the pan on the sloping surface, he has unintentionally moved downhill.
AS15-85-11438 (OF300) ( 143k or 898k )
122:38:47 Rightward of 11438. This final frame from Jim's Station 2 pan shows the back of the Rover. A comparison with 11422 ( 122k ) indicates that, while taking the pan on the sloping surface, he has unintentionally moved downhill. Clearly, the slope has taken him back away from the Rover and to the right.
AS15-85-11439 (OF300) ( 188k or 932k )
122:41:41 Down-Sun "before" of the gnomon at the Station 2 boulder. Note that we can see Jim's SCB and his scoop in his shadow. Note that Dave has the tongs in his left hand as he uses his right hand to adjust his camera focus so that he can take AS15-86-11544 and 11545.
AS15-85-11440 (OF300) ( 178k or 888k )
122:41:41 Jim stepped to his right to get this companion to 11439. Note the secondary crater the boulder dug as it landed at it's current location. The crater is on the downhill (north) side.
AS15-85-11441 (OF300) ( 240k or 1168k )
122:59:24 Down-Sun "before" of the comprehensive sample at Station 2. We can see Jim's SCB in his shadow. He is carrying the rake. Dave is standing at the left, taking cross-Sun pictures AS15-86-11567 and 11568.
AS15-85-11442 (OF300) ( 217k or 1013k )
122:59:24 Jim has stepped to his right to take this stereo companion to 11441. We can see from the position of Dave's legs that he has turned toward the Station 2 boulder to get "locator" AS15-86-11569. Note that Dave's tongs are stuck in the soil near the boulder.
AS15-85-11443 (OF300) ( 270k or 1256k )
123:07:13 Jim's "locator" from the core site showing the Station 2 boulder and the far wall of the rille west of the bend at Elbow crater. Note that the rake head is sitting on top of the boulder. The rake is normally attached to the extension handle, but Jim needed the handle to do the core.
AS15-85-11444 (OF300) ( 155k or 859k )
123:07:13 Jim stepped to his right to take this stereo companion to 11443. Note that Dave is standing north of the gnomon, probably taking AS15-86-11574.
AS15-85-11445 (OF300) ( 122k or 780k )
123:07:37 Jim has moved farther downhill to take this down-Sun "before" of the double core site. Dave has the core sections in his SCB and has come up to Jim's left so that, once Jim finishes this picture, he can get the core sections out.
AS15-85-11446 (OF300) ( 126k or 810k )
123:17:15 This picture is the first frame in a Station 2 pan Jim took from the double-core site on the rim of a small crater above the Rover. The picture is down-Sun and shows his shadow going down into the crater. Bennett Hill and the rille are in the background, with Hill 305 at the right.
AS15-85-11447 (OF300) ( 146k or 878k )
123:17:15 Rightward of 11446. The Station 2 boulder is on the right with Hill 305 in the distance. The rake head is still sitting on top of the boulder.
AS15-85-11448 (OF300) ( 172k or 955k )
123:17:15 Rightward of 11447. Centered on the Station 2 boulder with Hill 305 in the distance.
AS15-85-11449 (OF300) ( 204k or 1033k )
123:17:15 Rightward of 11448, with the Station 2 boulder on the left and Dave at his Rover seat on the right. View up the rille over the Rover.
AS15-85-11450 (OF300) ( 189k or 911k )
123:17:15 Rightward of 11449, showing the view up the rille toward the northwest. Dave is at the Rover and the gnomon is on the ground at his right foot. The gate at the back of the Rover is open. It is hinge on the left, the side closest to the camera.
AS15-85-11450/1 Red-Blue Anaglyph ( 1697k or 216k )
Red-blue anaglyph by Erik van Meijgaarden.
AS15-85-11451 (OF300) ( 197k or 924k )
123:17:15 Rightward of 11450. Dave is still working at his Rover seat. There are Rover tracks going through a small crater just east of the parking spot.
AS15-85-11452 (OF300) ( 189k or 903k )
123:17:15 Rightward of 11451, showing Dave reaching down to the Rover floor. Note that, in order to bend, he has his left foot out to the side with the knee bent and, also, has his right leg back with the knee bent. By doing this, he is able to lean about 30 degrees off vertical to his right. The TV record shows that he is putting the tongs down on the Rover at this point.
AS15-85-11453 (OF300) ( 213k or 1079k )
123:17:15 Rightward of 11452, toward the shadowed west face of Mt. Hadley. The summit is sunlit, but the northwest ridge line is still in shadow. Elbow Crater is in the middle distance.
AS15-85-11454 (OF300) ( 215k or 1096k )
123:17:15 Rightward of 11453. Jim has probably changed the f-stop and we can see some suggestion of detail in the shadowed areas of Mt. Hadley showing up because of light reflected off the surrounding terrain. The Swann Range is at the right and were named for the lead Apollo 15 geologist, Gordon A. Swann of the U.S. Geological Survey. Note the Rover tracks winding across the picture from the right edge, toward the center, and down to the left.
AS15-85-11454/5 Near-field Red-Blue Anaglyph ( 2886k or 219k )
Red-blue anaglyph by Erik van Meijgaarden.

AS15-85-11462 (OF300) ( 230k or 1096k )
123:17:15 Rightward of 11461, showing the view diagnonally upslope to the south.
AS15-85-11463 (OF300) ( 204k or 983k )
123:17:15 Rightward of 11462. The 10-meter crater at the Station 2 double core site is at the right.
AS15-85-11464 (OF300) ( 194k or 989k )
123:17:15 Rightward of 11463, across the uphill rim of the 10-meter crater on which Jim is standing.
AS15-85-11465 (OF300) ( 157k or 885k )
123:17:15 Rightward of 11464. Down-Sun final of Jim's Station 2 pan taken on the east rim of the double-core crater. As Jim told Houston at 123:17:12, he has slid downhill to the north during the course of the pan. Compare this picture with AS15-85-11446.


At the ALSEP site, Dave borrows Jim's camera to take pictures of the LRRR deployment.


AS15-85-11466 (OF300) ( 371k or 1665k )

125:30:44 Prior to taking documentation photos of the LRRR (Lunar Ranging Retro-Reflector), Dave takes a stereopair of a small rock which seems to have made the crater which is just below and to the right of the rock.
AS15-85-11467 (OF300) ( 371k or 1688k )
125:30:44 Dave stepped to his left before taking this stereo-companion to 11466.
AS15-85-11468 (OF300) ( 188k or 786k )
125:33:21 Dave took this cross-Sun from the south of the LRRR, showing the orientation gnomon and bubble level. The LRRR, reflects laser pulses back to the telescopes on Earth used to illuminate it. By measuring the two-way travel time between the telescope and the LRRR, experiments can determine the distance between the two to a few centimeters and address such issues as Einstein's Theory of General Relativity and the existence of a liquid lunar core. As of February 2005, the retroreflectors deployed on Apollos 11, 14, and 15 were still being used in conjunction with a dedicated facility at the MacDondald Observatory in Texas.
AS15-85-11469 (OF300) ( 299k or 1282k )
125:33:21 Cross-Sun of the LRRR from the north. Note the gnomon sticking up on the right side.
AS15-85-11470 (OF300) ( 153k or 792k )
143:03:51 Dave is probably testing the Rover steering prior to maneuvering the Rover into a down-Sun heading so that he can re-initialize the navigation system based on the known position of the Sun. In this down-Sun photo, we can see the ALSEP in the background and, on the Rover, the maps and 16-mm movie camera mounted on the accessory staff forward of Jim's seat and the tool rack at the back of the vehicle. The umbrella-shaped high-gain antenna at the front of the Rover is pointed straight up, the TV is in its stowed position, the low-gain antenna just forward of Dave is pointed straight up.

The small bag mounted on the back of Jim's seat is the BSLSS (Buddy Secondary Life Support System) bag ( 159k ) which contains a set of hoses and fittings which would allow the astronauts to share cooling water in case one of them lost cooling. Note the rearward fender extensions on both visible fenders. During the flight out from Earth, these were stacked onto the forward sections and, during deployment, the astronauts slid these extensions aft on guide rails until they locked into place. On both Apollo 16 and 17, the Commanders accidentally tore the right rear extension off by walking too close and brushing against them. Ron Creel has provided a summary ( 1.3 Mb PDF ) of the fender extension losses that occurred on all three Rover missions.

AS15-85-11471 (OF300) ( 161k or 828k )
143:03:51 Jim took this excellent picture of Dave maneuvering the Rover at the start of the EVA-2 traverse. The Solar Wind Collector is visible beyond the Rover TV camera. At the front of the Rover, we can see the closed battery covers. In front of Jim's seat, we can see his footrests. Note that there is dust coming off the wheels as Dave maneuvers. This picture also gives us a good view of Dave's RCU-mounted Hasselblad camera and of the wire Rover wheels. The traverse maps are mounted on Jim's handhold and the Buddy Secondary Life Support System (BSLSS) bag is hanging from the back of Jim's seat. A high-resolution detail ( 169k ) shows Dave's Hasselblad, the DAC, the handcontroller, and the traverse map. Note the RCU bracket mounted on the back of the DAC.
AS15-85-11472 (OF300) ( 134k or 901k )
143:38:21 Dave stopped the Rover in order to take a rest break and suggested that Jim take his camera off and take a partial pan. During Apollo 16, John Young and Charlie Duke realized that they could do a full pan by turning the Rover in a tight circle while taking pictures; and they and the Apollo 17 crew used the technique to good effect. This first frame of Jim's partial pan is almost up-Sun toward the Swann Range. the foreground object is the TV camera, which is pointed down and aft to the right, roughly toward back portion of the right-front Rover wheel.
AS15-85-11473 (OF300) ( 156k or 899k )
143:38:21 Rightward of 11472, showing the Swann Range, Silver Spur, and the northeastern flank of Hadley Delta. In this picture, there is a suggestion of the shallow trough that runs along the base of the mountain.

AS15-85-11487 (OF300) ( 203k or 1099k )
143:55:26 Rightward of 11486, showing the now-sunlit western face of Mt. Hadley. The lineations visible on the mountain are generally believed to be a lighting effect due to the long shadows cast by small-scale undulations at this very-low sun angle. In the foreground we can see the tracks made by the Rover as Dave and Jim approached Station 6. The tracks enter the picture at left center, cross to center below the foreground crater and then uphill to the final parking place. (See, also, the caption to AS15-86- 11654.)
AS15-85-11488 (OF300) ( 191k or 1043k )
143:56:47 This frame is part of Jim's first Station 6 pan and shows the now-sunlit western face of Mt. Hadley. The lineations visible on the mountain are generally believed to be a lighting effect due to the long shadows cast by small-scale undulations at this very-low sun angle. In the foreground we can see the tracks made by the Rover as Dave and Jim approached Station 6.
AS15-85-11489 (OF300) ( 196k or 1083k )

143:56:47 Rightward of 11492. Dave is looking up at the sighting scope as he aims the high-gain antenna. The TV camera is still pointed down and toward the right front wheel.
AS15-85-11494 (OF300) ( 178k or 962k )
143:56:47 Rightward of 11493, over the front of the Rover. Note that the footprints in front of the Rover are only slightly indented. Beyond the TV camera, the LCRU cover is open.
AS15-85-11495 (OF300) ( 206k or 1093k )
143:56:47 Rightward of 11494, diagonally upslope toward the southeast.
AS15-85-11496 (OF300) ( 165k or 956k )
143:56:47 Rightward of 11495. Note that Jim did not get complete coverage up the slope of Hadley Delta because of the near impossibility of leaning back far enough to aim the camera toward the summit of the mountain.
AS15-85-11497 (OF300) ( 115k or 839k )
143:56:47 Rightward of 11496. Upslope. Last frame in Jim's pan.
AS15-85-11498 (OF300) ( 130k or 864k )
143:59:14 Down-sun "before" of the first sample at Station 6, uphill of the Rover. This picture was taken with the wrong f-stop, which Jim notices and corrects before taking the next frame. We can see in Dave's shadow that he is taking a cross-Sun from upslope. The samples are 15240-45 and 15250-54.
AS15-85-11499 (OF300) ( 155k or 891k )
143:59:14 Dave and Jim are preparing to sample near a small crater uphill from the Rover at Station 6. As can be seen in a detail from this second down-Sun "before", Jim caught Dave moving his right foot forward. Between this frame and Jim's next, Dave plants the tongs in the ground beyond and a little upslope from the gnomon. Dave appears to be getting into position to do that.
AS15-85-11500 (OF300) ( 125k or 813k )
143:59:14 Jim has stepped to his right to get this stereo companion to 11499. Dave has stuck his tongs in the ground. We can see Dave's checklist is on his forearm, mostly in shadow, although part of the righthand page is in sunlight above his thumb. A pack of sample bags is hanging from his camera. Note that he is wearing strap-on pockets on both thighs. The one on his right thigh is open and we can see the Velcro strips used to hold the top closed. Dave took a cross-Sun stereopair from above the crater, AS15-86-11609 and 11610, stepping to his right between the frames. Dave has his right foot raised and, although the footprint could suggest that he has just lifted his right foot off that print, the orientation of the print seems to be inconsistent with that. Dave may be about to step to his right, perhaps between the frames of the stereopair.
AS15-85-11501 (OF300) ( 137k or 876k )
144:02:55 Jim took this down-Sun "before" of the second Station 6 sample area. The samples taken from this spot are 15290-95. Dave shadow is on the left.

144:06:26 Jim's down-Sun "before" of the third Station 6 sample area. Note that the gnomon is probably still swinging. Dave has probably just put it in position and is scuffing dirt with his feet as he backs away.
AS15-85-11504 (OF300) ( 131k or 863k )
144:06:26 Jim stepped to his right to get this stereo companion to 11503. Dave is on the left taking cross-Suns.
AS15-85-11505 (OF300) ( 136k or 870k )
144:11:10 In Jim's down-Sun of the fourth Station 6 sample site, Dave is on the downhill side of the gnomon. He has his tongs in hand and we can see individual sample bags hanging from the side of his camera. The sample taken from this spot is 15299.
AS15-85-11506 (OF300) ( 138k or 851k )
144:11:10 Jim stepped to his right to get this stereo companion to 11505. Dave may be looking at the impressions the rock made as it moved from east to west to its final resting place. Dave's close-ups of the impressions are 11626 and 11627.
AS15-85-11507 (OF300) ( 127k or 945k )

144:14:17 Jim's 2nd Station 6 Pan. Rightward of 11513, showing Dave taking a cross-Sun stereopair. He has just stepped to his left to take the second picture of the pair and we can see a fan of dirt that the motion of his left boot has sprayed to the east. Notice the steep slope on which Dave parked the Rover.
AS15-85-11515 (OF300) ( 202k or 1436k )
144:14:17 Jim's 2nd Station 6 Pan. Rightward of 11514. In this up-Sun, we can see the steep angle at which the Rover is parked. Dave has the tongs in his left hand while he uses his right to take photographs. He has moved downhill of the small crater and may be taking AS15-8611630. They have been working upslope of the Rover, moving west between sample sites. This is their foruth sample site. Notice the disturbed areas around the prior sample sites.
AS15-85-11516 (OF300) ( 212k or 1110k )
144:14:17 Jim's 2nd Station 6 Pan.

AS15-86-11538 (OF300) ( 202k or 928k )
122:23:17 Cross-Sun "after" of the third Station 1 sample. Note that they have picked up both of the rock fragments that were just east of the Sun-facing gnomon leg. The chart mounted on that leg has both color and gray scales for use in photoprocessing.
AS15-86-11539 (OF300) ( 297k or 1310k )
Dave has backed to take a cross-Sun "after" from the north. Jim is at the upper left and has taken a soil sample from the place where they collected the southernmost of the two rock fragments.
AS15-86-11540 (OF300) ( 206k or 987k )
122:24:37 There is some uncertainty as to when Dave took this photo. He may have taken it as he went back to the Rover, and the group of rocks shown here may be the ones beyond Dave's shadow in AS15-85-11418.
AS15-86-11541 (OF300) ( 254k or 1148k )
Similar to 11540.
AS15-86-11542 (OF300) ( 273k or 1114k )
Similar to 11540. Dave may have disturbed some of the soil, possibly to see whether the rocks were buried and/or to test the cohesiveness of the soil.
AS15-86-11543 (OF300) ( 202k or 897k )
Dave has stepped to his right to take this stereo companion to 11542.

AS15-86-11548 (OF300) ( 214k or 986k )
122:43:06 Jim is about to sample the fillet on the east side of the Station 2 boulder. Out on the mare, most boulders have skirts of dirt built up out of ejecta from nearby - or distant - impacts. The ejecta strikes the side of the boulder and falls to the ground, building up the skirt or fillet. In this case, the fillet is more likely to be a mound of soil pushed aside as the boulder landed at it's present location. Dave is holding an individual sample bag to receive the soil. Note the orange color of the light transmitted through the Teflon.
AS15-86-11549 (OF300) ( 375k or 1705k )
Dave's yo-yo is no longer working and he has stuck the tongs in the soil to free his hands. He may have taken this series of three photographs to show the ability of the soil to support the tongs.
AS15-86-11550 (OF300) ( 345k or 1471k )
Dave has stepped to his left to take this stereo companion to 11549.

AS15-86-11577 (OF300) ( 301k or 1365k )
123:09:35 Jim has pushed most of the first core section into the ground by hand. He will use the hammer to drive the rest of the double core into the ground.
AS15-86-11578 (OF300) ( 301k or 1357k )
123:10:03 Jim has finished driving the double core. Note the fitting on the bottom of the extension handle that is attached to the top of the upper core section. They are working on the northern rim of a 10-meter crater, which is visible behind Jim.
AS15-86-11579 (OF300) ( 287k or 1316k )
123:42:52 Dave has stopped the Rover on the pretext of fixing his seatbelt, but is actually collecting a sample of vesicular basalt. Dave has stuck Jim's tongs in the ground to serve as a gnomon. Note that the clip from the broken yo-yo is still attached.
AS15-86-11580 (OF300) ( 274k or 1191k )
Dave has stepped to his left to get this stereo companion to 11579. There appears to be some obscuration of the central part of the image, perhaps because of dust on the camera lens. The sample will be the rock just to the left of the tongs.
AS15-86-11581 (OF300) ( 241k or 1050k )
Dave has stepped back and/or has pointed the camera down to take this final "before" of the Seatbelt Basalt collected during the drive back to the LM from Station 2. In the upper left corner, note the three small, equally-spaced pebbles and a fourth one below the line of the first three pebbles and closer to the center.
AS15-86-11582 (OF300) ( 321k or 1451k )
Dave's "after" of the Seatbelt Basalt. He has stepped to his right since taking the "befores". The four pebbles noted in 11581 are near the top center in this frame.

The solid boom connecting the two packages is a new design feature. On the prior flights, the two packages were connected by a stiff cable which tended to retain loops and, whenever either package was moved, the other one would change orientation and/or tip over. The Apollo 15 SIDE/CCIG were deployed easily and without incident.
AS15-86-11596 (OF300) ( 232k or 1146k )
Dave has backed up to get this second down-Sun of the SIDE/CCIG. Note the considerable amount of dust on the ribbon cable connecting the SIDE to the Central Station.
AS15-86-11597 (OF300) ( 321k or 1429k )
125:36:56 Cross-Sun from the north of the SIDE/CCIG.
AS15-86-11598 (OF300) ( 268k or 1244k )
125:45:00 In this picture that Dave took of the LM and the Rover, we can see the tire tracks made when, at 125:42:11, he backed the Rover to put it closer to the MESA. Jim is working at his side of the Rover, facing away from Dave. The rock box is visible on the MESA table. The ETB is on Dave's Rover seat. On the Rover, we can see the sighting scope on the back of the high-gain antenna, the 16-mm Data Acquisition Camera (DAC), and the penetrometer. Hadley Delta is in the background on the right and Silver Spur is to the left of the ascent stage. Note that the apparent layering in Silver Spur is still visible, although not as strongly as during the SEVA at 106:58:07. Compare with Dave's 500-mm SEVA pan of Silver Spur ( 312k ).
AS15-86-11599 (OF300) ( 274k or 1256k )
125:45:12 Jim is working at the back of the Rover, having taken a Sample Collection Bag (SCB) out from under his seat. St.George Crater in in the distance behind him.
AS15-86-11600 (OF300) ( 257k or 1184k )
125:45:00 Rightward of 11599, with Silver Spur in the background on the lefthand side of the image and Last Crater in the near dstance. Note that the lineations are not as distinct as they were during the SEVA. Compare with AS15-87- 11747. the foreground object on the left is the discarded Quad III experiment pallet. On the LM, we can see a plume deflector shield. Note the dramatic tilt of the spacecraft.
AS15-86-11601 (OF300) ( 263k or 1247k )
125:45:12 Jim is facing Dave, probably in response to Dave's request that he do so. Jim is at the back right of the Rover.
AS15-86-11602 (OF300) ( 241k or 1185k )
125:45:12 Similar to 11601, with Jim at the back of the Rover, St.George Crater in in the distance behind him.
AS15-86-11603 (OF300) ( 152k or 925k )
125:45:12 This excellent picture is the last one that Dave took at the end of EVA-1. He has moved around to a position in the LM shadow southwest of the Rover. A detail shows Jim and the Rover. Mt. Hadley, in all its glory, is in the background. On the back of the Rover we can see two SCBs mounted on the gate; and, also, the rake, both pairs of tongs, the extension handle, probably with the scoop attached, and the penetrometer. Note that the TV camera is pointed down, in the stowed position. A comparison of details from 11603 and AS15-92-12424, which Dave took while Jim was digging the Station 8 trench, shows the tape job Dave did during EVA-2 preps to secure Jim's broken antenna to the top of his OPS.

Dave Scott continued using magazine 86 during EVA-2.


AS15-86-11604 (OF300) ( 345k or 1709k )
142:56:47 At the start of EVA-2, Dave took this cross-Sun from the north of the small glass sphere that he had noticed on the ground under the Rover stowage position prior to the first EVA at 108:30:36. The piece of hardware on the ground is probably a so-called "pip-pin" that was pulled off the Rover during the deployment. The "aggie" is above the slightly-buried rock above and slightly to the right of the center of the picture.
AS15-86-11605 (OF300) ( 320k or 1480k )
Dave has stepped to his left to take this stereo companion to 11604.
AS15-86-11606 (OF300) ( 323k or 1471k )
142:56:47 At the start of EVA-2, Dave took three cross-Suns from the north of the small glass sphere that he had noticed on the ground under the Rover stowage position prior to the first EVA at 108:30:36. This is the third and best of those pictures. The piece of hardware on the ground is probably a so-called "pip-pin" that was pulled off the Rover during the deployment. The "aggie" is just beyond the relatively large rock that is immediately above and to the left of the pip-pin.
AS15-86-11607 (OF300) ( 169k or 1024k )
Down-Sun "before" of the glass sphere.
AS15-86-11608 (OF300) ( 342k or 1671k )
142:56:47 Dave's "after" shows that he not only picked up the 'aggie' but two other rocks as well. The aggie is sample 15017, a 17-gram "hollow glass sphere"; and the other two samples are 15027 and 15028. Both are glass-coated breccias, and they weigh 51 and 59 grams, respectively.
AS15-86-11609 (OF300) ( 310k or 1293k )
143:59:14 Dave and Jim are sampling a small crater uphill from the Rover at Station 6. They have the gnomon positioned down-Sun of the crater. Dave takes this cross-Sun "before" from uphill (south).
AS15-86-11610 (OF300) ( 322k or 1407k )
143:59:14 Dave stepped to his right to get this stereo companion to 11609.
AS15-86-11611 (OF300) ( 340k or 1583k )
Dave has turned slightly to his right to take this third "before" of the first Station 6 sample area.
AS15-86-11612 (OF300) ( 318k or 1417k )
144:02:22 This cross-Sun "after", taken from uphill of the first Station 6 sample area, shows that Jim has taken samples from both the center and rim of the small crater.
AS15-86-11613 (OF300) ( 301k or 1273k )
Dave has stepped to his left to take this stereo companion to 11612.
AS15-86-11614 (OF300) ( 302k or 1257k )
Cross-Sun "after" of the first Station 6 sample.
AS15-86-11615 (OF300) ( 342k or 1560k )
Cross-Sun "after" of the first Station 6 sample.
AS15-86-11616 (OF300) ( 332k or 1514k )
144:02:22 They have moved the gnomon a short distance west of their first sample site in order to collect some small rock fragments. Dave took this cross-Sun "before" from upslope (south). The samples taken from this second site at Station 6 are 15290-95.
AS15-86-11617 (OF300) ( 313k or 1489k )
Dave has stepped to his right to take this stereo companion to 11616.
AS15-86-11618 (OF300) ( 158k or 854k )
144:02:55 At the site of their second sample site above the Station 6 crater, Dave took this "locator" to the Rover, with the North Complex in the background. The small, fresh crater with fragmental debris on its rim - probably soil compacted in the impact and, therefore, called regolith breccia or instant rock - is also visible in 11617.
AS15-86-11619 (OF300) ( 145k or 885k )
Hadley Rille from the first Station 6 sampling site.
AS15-86-11620 (OF300) ( 104k or 657k )
Similar to 11619.
AS15-86-11621 (OF300) ( 309k or 1397k )
144:06:26 Cross-Sun "before" from upslope of the third Station 6 sample site. The corresponding sample is 15298. Note the deep footprints Dave made when he positioned the gnomon.
AS15-86-11622 (OF300) ( 297k or 1298k )
144:06:26 Dave stepped to his right to get this stereo-companion to 11621.
AS15-86-11623 (OF300) ( 265k or 1118k )
144:08:12 Cross-Sun "after" of the third Station 6 sample site. Note the orange color of the transmitted light in the shadow of the individual sample bag that Jim is holding.
AS15-86-11624 (OF300) ( 276k or 1174k )
144:11:10 Dave took this cross-Sun from downhill (north) at the fourth Station 6 sample sit . The up-Sun gnomon leg, the one with the color/gray scale, is just north of the rock they will collect. The rock was traveling from east to west (left to right) - undoubtedly at very low speed - and hit first at the upper left. It continued toward top center, and then rolled downhill a shortways to its final place.
AS15-86-11625 (OF300) ( 301k or 1349k )
144:11:10 Dave stepped to his left to get this stereo companion to 11624. The initial impact point is at the upper left.
AS15-86-11626 (OF300) ( 151k or 697k )
144:11:26 This is Dave's close-up of the impact crater made by the fourth station 6 sample. Dave used his tongs to get his distance right for good focus but either was moving because he was having trouble keeping his balance as he tried to lean forward on the soft, soil-covered slope or had the focus set incorrectly.
AS15-86-11627 (OF300) ( 146k or 679k )
144:11:26 This is second Dave's close-up of the impact crater made by the fourth station 6 sample.
AS15-86-11628 (OF300) ( 310k or 1339k )
144:13:47 Dave's cross-Sun "after" of the fourth Station 6 sample.
AS15-86-11629 (OF300) ( 323k or 1477k )
144:14:17 While Jim took his second Station 6 pan, Dave moved the gnomon to their fifth sampling area, uphill and to the west of the Rover, and took this cross-Sun "before" as noted in the AS15-85-11514 caption.
AS15-86-11630 (OF300) ( 324k or 1409k )
Dave stepped to his right to get this stereo companion to 11629, as noted in the AS15-85- 11515 caption.
AS15-86-11631 (OF300) ( 182k or 950k )
144:15:48 At Jim's suggestion, Dave took this down-Sun "before" of the fifth Station 6 sampling site.
AS15-86-11632 (OF300) ( 334k or 1596k )
144:17:46 Cross-Sun "after" of the fifth Station 6 sampling site. Note that Jim's scoop is stuck in the ground beyond the gnomon.
AS15-86-11633 (OF300) ( 234k or 1283k )
144:19:25 Dave has moved downhill toward the 10-meter crater which is about 25 meters NNW of the Rover. He stops at the southeast rim and takes two pictures into the crater.
AS15-86-11634 (OF300) ( 264k or 1287k )
144:19:25 Dave stepped to his right to get this stereo companion to 11633. In a few minutes, he will use the hammer to break the block at the center of this picture.
AS15-86-11635 (OF300) ( 293k or 1351k )
144:21:02 Because of the slope of Hadley Delta, the north (downslope) rim of the 10-meter crater at Station 6 provides a level place on which to work. Consequently, Dave's cross-Sun "befores" of the crater samples are from the north.
AS15-86-11636 (OF300) ( 306k or 1421k )
Dave stepped to his right to get this stereo companion to 11635.
AS15-86-11637 (OF300) ( 213k or 926k )
144:22:18 Dave took this photo "after" collecting some small samples in the Station 6 crater.
AS15-86-11638 (OF300) ( 323k or 1437k )
144:23:19 Dave used the hammer to break the largest of the small rocks that was in sampling area in the Station 6 crater. This cross-Sun was taken from the north after he broke the rock but before he collected any of the fragments.
AS15-86-11639 (OF300) ( 320k or 1430k )
Dave stepped to his right to get this stereo companion to 11638.
AS15-86-11640 (OF300) ( 285k or 1352k )
144:24:39 Dave took this cross-Sun picture after collecting some of the fragments of the broken rock.
AS15-86-11641 (OF300) ( 294k or 1317k )
144:25:45 While waiting for Jim to join him at the upslope rim of the Station 6 crater, Dave took this cross-Sun "before" from the south of the trench site.
AS15-86-11642 (OF300) ( 302k or 1400k )
Dave stepped to his right to get this stereo companion to 11641.
AS15-86-11643 (OF300) ( 231k or 1133k )
144:27:45 After having Jim move out of the way to his left, Dave took this "after" of the Station 6 trench from the northeast.
AS15-86-11644 (OF300) ( 180k or 1005k )
Dave may have taken this down-Sun "after" of the Station 6 trench just prior to falling.
AS15-86-11645 (OF300) ( 284k or 1242k )
144:28:41 After regaining his feet, Dave took this "after" picture of the trench from the southeast.
AS15-86-11646 (OF300) ( 287k or 1278k )
Dave stepped to his right to get this stereo companion to 11645.
AS15-86-11647 (OF300) ( 273k or 1240k )
144:35:08 After completing their trench activities, Dave and Jim moved back down to the north rim of the Station 6 crater. This is Dave's cross-Sun "before".
AS15-86-11648 (OF300) ( 279k or 1297k )
Dave stepped to his right to get this stereo companion to 11647.
AS15-86-11649 (OF300) ( 242k or 1084k )
144:37:01 Dave has moved around to the downslope side of the core site to take this picture as Jim starts to push the single core in by hand. We can even see the core number, 07.
AS15-86-11650 (OF300) ( 252k or 1151k )
144:37:15 Jim has pushed the core tube all the way in by hand. Dave's tongs are stuck in the ground beyond the gnomon.
AS15-86-11651 (OF300) ( 217k or 962k )
144:37:44 After Jim removed the Station 6 core, Dave took this "after" of the hole.
AS15-86-11652 (OF300) ( 334k or 1493k )
144:39:27 While climbing back up to the Rover, Dave stopped to take pictures of bootprints and the Rover tracks. This first frame shows some deep bootprints in the soft east rim of the Station 6 crater. These footprints are the ones Jim just made as he started his climb back up to the Rover. Jim may have been commenting on the soft soil at this spot in his comment at 144:39:22.
AS15-86-11653 (OF300) ( 331k or 1587k )
Stereo companion to 11652. There are some Rover tracks at the upper left.
AS15-86-11654 (OF300) ( 303k or 1410k )
Jim has continued to climb as Dave continued to take a series of pictures of the Rover tracks and bootprints. Note that, in approaching Station 6, Dave drove from the lower left toward the upper left. Compare with AS15-85-11487, which is a picture from Jim's Station 6 pan, showing the Rover tracks coming uphill east of the crater.
AS15-86-11655 (OF300) ( 267k or 1232k )
144:40:30 Jim climbs toward the Rover from the sample site in the Station 6 crater. Dave is taking a series of pictures of the Rover tracks and bootprints.

144:44:03 Cross-Sun "after" of the bulk sample site near the Rover at Station 6.
AS15-86-11658 (OF300) ( 254k or 1053k )
145:15:16 Dave placed his tongs on top of the Station 6a boulder while he took this picture across the top of the rock. Note that the left-rear wheel of the Rover is off the ground. Jim is standing at his side of the vehicle, holding on to it. It is a shame that he didn't take a picture of Dave working at the rock.
AS15-86-11659 (OF300) ( 231k or 988k )
145:15:16 Dave stepped to his left to take this stereo companion to 11658.

AS15-88-11861 (OF300) ( 109k or 787k )

163:58:11 Jim is using the scoop to get the distance right for good focus on a placard he just attached to the side of the Rover console. Note the SCB on the floor boards on the left and the footrests on the right. An enhanced detail of the area covered by the shadow of Jim's helmet shows Dave's camera with the label "CDR".
AS15-88-11862 (OF300) ( 111k or 762k )
163:58:11 Jim's photo of the placard, which reads "Man's First Wheels on the Moon, Delivered by Falcon, July 30, 1971.". The signatures of the three members of the crew are at the bottom. In the background, we can see Dave's RCU and, on the top of it, the small warning-flag windows and the large Mode switch. He is not wearing his camera. Note the "Red Apple", below the RCU, with which he would open his purge valve in the case of an emergency requiring use of the OPS.
AS15-88-11863 (OF300) ( 165k or 1015k )
163:58:27 Color photo of Dave with the flag at the start of EVA-3. Compare the appearance of Silver Spur at the upper left with AS15-87- 11748, which is a frame from Dave's SEVA color pan taken at 106:58:27.

Dave Scott used Jim's camera to take the three "tourist" photos of Jim.

AS15-88-11866 (OF300) ( 182k or 1094k )
163:59:05 Few Apollo photographs have been reproduced more often than this color photo of Jim, the flag, the Rover, and the LM, with Mt. Hadley Delta in the background. Note the bright, rectangular pattern on the high-gain antenna. The pattern is produced by sunlight reflected by the mirrored tiles on the top of the TV camera. A detail shows that Jim has a strap-on pocket on each thigh ( 153k ).

Jim Irwin resumed using magazine 88.


AS15-88-11867 (OF300) ( 117k or 754k )
164:03:40 The Apollo 15 Index of 70 mm Photographs (MSC January 12, 1972) describes 11867-71 as showing a "microfilm cassette" taken at Station 8 - Jim's trench at the ALSEP. I am not convinced that Jim took the photos at the ALSEP site but suspect that he took them near the LM after Dave drove off at about 164:03:40. I have thought that Jim decided to walk out to the ALSEP site because he did not want to waste time getting his seatbelt on. However, it is possible that he also wanted a bit of time to put out the items he was going to leave on the Moon and take the five documentation photos.]

[In his book To Rule the Night, Jim wrote "There were a number of things we left on the Moon purposely. I left some medallions, flat pieces of silver with the fingerprints of Mary and our children. And as a result of a letter that I got two months before launch, I also left a small portrait of J. B. Irwin. A young lady sent me a picture of her father, J. B. Irwin, saying that he had talked about his desire to go to the Moon all his life. He died a seventy-five, before the first manned landing. I thought it would be a gracious gesture to take J. B.'s picture and leave it on the Moon." See more about the J.B. Irwin story in the caption for 11870, below.]

[In addition, in 2005 an inquiry to the NASA Headquarters History office by a writer in Oregon, Sierra Jenkins, brought to my attention an article from the October 2, 1971 edition of The Bulletin, a newspaper published in Bend, Oregon ( 1.2 Mb PDF ). Jim Irwin and other Apollo astronauts did geology field training near Bend on various occasions. According to the newspaper article, during one of these trips Jim met Floyd E. Watson, a building inspector in Bend who, in 1971, sent Jim a "small sliver of Central Oregon lava which I hope will be able to deliver to the Moon for me." The article then mentions a letter Watson received from Irwin in late September, stating "I did carry your sliver of lava to the moon and left it there. I took a picture of the location" The picture, which accompanies the article, is 11870 (below). The inscription appears to be in Jim's hand.]

[As of 13 July 2005, I have not had a chance to examine high-resolution scans of any of the five pictures of the left items, 11867 - 71., nor have I found independant confirmation of the story. Given that Jim obliged J. B. Irwin's daughter on a similar request, I am inclined to believe that the Watson story is true.]

[Finally, in August 2008, Joel Powell called attention to a December 1976 article in Space World magazine that describes a microfilm copy of an Apollo 11 Manned Flight Awareness Commemorative Booklet that Jim Irwin left on the Moon.]

AS15-88-11868 (OF300) ( 110k or 743k )
Jim stepped to his right and a bit closer to the items on the surface. However, he did not turn the camera left after stepping right, so he probably wasn't trying to get a stereopair but, rather, was trying to get the camera at a distance from which the items on the surface would be in focus. Note the shadow cast by what may be the scoop, off camera to the left.
AS15-88-11869 (OF300) ( 121k or 772k )
Jim stepped back and put himself at a third distance in an effort to get the items on the surface in focus. Note the white object near the center of the heel of the bootprint at the bottom on the image.
AS15-88-11870 (OF300) ( 135k or 842k )
164:03:40 As mentioned in the caption to 11867, during a geology field trip to Bend, Oregon, Jim met Floyd E. Watson, a building inspector in Bend who, in 1971, sent Jim a "small sliver of Central Oregon lava which I hope will be able to deliver to the Moon for me."]

[Jim took five pictures, AS15-88-11867 - 71 of what are undoubtedly the various items he left on the Moon. Frames 11870 and 11871 form a stereopair. On 15 July 2005, Mike Gentry and Susan Erskine at NASA Johnson provided high-resolution scans from original film of the two frames. The images are slightly out-of-focus and while preparing to make an anaglyph, Andy Chaikin applied the Photoshop Sharp Unmask function to the images and noticed that the object at the lower left, which Jim had turned over after taking 11869, is a black-and-white picture of "an elderly man, balding, with shirt and tie". This is undoubtedly J.B. Irwin. In a detail from 11870 with Sharp Unmask applied ( 655k ), I have marked what I believe is the rock fragment Jim was indicating in the inscribed photo reproduced in The Bulletin article ( 1.2 Mb PDF ).

AS15-88-11871 (OF300) ( 149k or 881k )
164:03:40 Jim stepped to his right and turned to his left to get this stereo-companion to 11870. Andy Chaikin has provided a red-blue anaglyph of 11870 and 71.
AS15-88-11872 (OF300) ( 125k or 888k )
164:21:50 Down-Sun of the "Station 8" trench, which Jim dug late in EVA-2. Jim took this series of trench documentation photos after he and Dave extracted the deep core at the start of EVA-3.

AS15-88-11876 (OF300) ( 248k or 1265k )
164:21:50 Cross-Sun from the south of the Station 8 trench. Compare with AS15-92-12443, which Jim took at about 148:31:11, just before running back to the LM for EVA-2 closeout. Note the Rover tracks on the north side of the trench in 11876. The herring-bone pattern indicates that Dave was driving from left to right, almost certainly on his way back to the LM for EVA-2 closeout, not long after Jim took 12443.
AS15-88-11877 (OF300) ( 279k or 1472k )
Jim stepped to his right to get this stereo companion to 11876.

Some three hours later Dave Scott is using Jim's camera which is apparently working again.


AS15-88-11882 (OF300) ( 121k or 965k )
167:01:07 This picture shows the Rover deployment hardware. Of greater interest is the damage to the engine bell that is clearly visible. See an enhanced detail ( 2.7Mb ) by Kipp Teague. Note the jettison bag and other trash that the astronauts have tossed under the spacecraft.
AS15-88-11883 (OF300) ( 91k or 744k )
Rover deployment hardware.
AS15-88-11884 (OF300) ( 196k or 1105k )

Dave stepped to his left to get this stereo companion to 11888.
AS15-88-11890 (OF300) ( 163k or 951k )
At some point after 167:22:43, Dave took this picture of the hammer and feather lying next to the MESA. The picture was taken from a point west of the MESA. It appears that Dave kicked the hammer and feather out of the way after finishing his gravity demonstration, probably so that they wouldn't get stepped on.
AS15-88-11891 (OF300) ( 133k or 825k )
167:38:54 Dave has driven the Rover out to the VIP site so that the worldwide television audience can watch the launch. This picture shows the battery mirrors.

167:49:38 Rightward of 11900. Dave took this photo as part of a pan at the VIP site. It shows the Rover at it's final parking place. At the back, we can see the rake, but neither of the tongs. Keith Wilson notes that this frame shows a red bible that Dave has just placed against the handcontroller. See the detail produced by Kipp Teague; see, also,the discussion following 167:49:38.

Ed Hengeveld has done a related painting (104k ).

AS15-88-11902 (OF300) ( 188k or 1012k )
Rightward of 11901, showing the rear of the Rover and, beyond it, the card listing the fallen astronauts and cosmonauts.
AS15-88-11903 (OF300) ( 156k or 836k )
Rightward of 11902, showing the astronaut/cosmonaut memorial. Note that the Rover tracks in this area do not seem to be as dark as those near the ALSEP. Mt. Hadley is in the background.

AS15-88-11929 (OF300) ( 158k or 1139k )
On the way back to the LM from the VIP site, Dave stopped to take this photo of a partially-buried boulder. This is probably the rock noted in 11928. Note the relative position of the intersecting Rover tracks in the two pictures.
AS15-88-11930 (OF300) ( 111k or 759k )
167:54:21 This is the last picture Dave took during EVA-3. He is at the MESA and takes this picture through the struts toward the Rover at the VIP site. Note that he parked the Rover facing slightly to the right of the LM, possibly to give the TV camera a clear view of the launch. John Young and Gene Cernan parked their Rovers in similar orientations.

Most of the remaining frames were taken through the windows after the end of EVA-3.


AS15-88-11931 (OF300) ( 66k or 852k )

Talus slope on the west wall of Hadley Rille.
AS15-89-12151 (OF300) ( 171k or 1161k )
Talus slope on the west wall of Hadley Rille. Journal Contributor Dave Byrne noticed that the upper righthand corner of this frame overlaps with the lower lefthand corner of 12097.
AS15-89-12152 (OF300) ( 128k or 967k )
Similar to 12115, showing the west wall of Hadley Rille. With this frame, Dave starts a vertical sequence down the slope into the rille.

AS15-89-12157 (OF300) ( 138k or 1072k )
Similar to 12104, showing a portion of the west rim of Hadley Rille. Dave starts another vertical sequence with this picture.
AS15-89-12158 (OF300) ( 143k or 1102k )
Below 12157.
AS15-89-12159 (OF300) ( 122k or 1050k )

Rightward of 12161.
AS15-89-12163 (OF300) ( 166k or 1188k )
This picture shows a small crater with dark ejecta that is southwest of Elbow Crater. This small crater is one fiducial above center and 3/4 of a fiducial left. Elbow Crater is further left, but very subtle from this angle. Note that the dark-ejecta crater diameter is about half a fiducial spacing or about 0.01 radians. The distance to the crater from Station 10 is about 3.5 kilometers, so the diameter is about 35 meters. This same crater can be seen in AS15-82-11179.
AS15-89-12164 (OF300) ( 117k or 1059k )
166:23:55 The photo shows the white-ejecta crater on the east rim of St. George Crater.
AS15-89-12165 (OF300) ( 125k or 1060k )
167:10:16 This photo shows some outcrops and/or boulders on the 'leading edge' hill and Big Rock Mountain in the background. A comparison of this photo with frame AS15-82-11174 from Jim's Station 10 pan shows that, contrary to the conclusion of Bailey and Ulrich, this picture was not taken at Station 10. A comparison with AS15-82-11053, which Jim took at the LM at the start of the EVA, shows that it was taken at the LM. This photo and the others that follow it on the magazine were probably taken just before they stowed the magazine in the ETB, possibly a little before 167:23:07.
AS15-89-12166 (OF300) ( 130k or 1116k )
Rightward of 12165.
AS15-89-12167 (OF300) ( 112k or 1030k )

Above 12166.
AS15-89-12169 (OF300) ( 93k or 972k )
Rightward of 12168, showing the outcrops near the top of Big Rock Mountain. A detail may show the boulders Dave mentioned at 166:38:03.
AS15-89-12170 (OF300) ( 116k or 1031k )
Showing a portion of the 'leading edge' hill.

AS15-89-12173 (OF300) ( 100k or 883k )
Showing outcrops near the summit of Mt. Hadley Delta.
AS15-89-12174 (OF300) ( 109k or 901k )
Leftward of 12173. Note the group of boulders left of center.
AS15-89-12175 (OF300) ( 97k or 945k )
Showing a very dark feature, possibly a crater, on Mt. Hadley Delta.
AS15-89-12176 (OF300) ( 82k or 897k )
Showing an outcrop in the Swann Range.
AS15-89-12177 (OF300) ( 126k or 1053k )
Showing the blocky-rimmed crater on the left flank of the 'leading edge' hill. Note that the darkness of these boulders may be due, mostly, to the fact that we are looking up-Sun at them.
AS15-89-12178 (OF300) ( 104k or 974k )
Showing a patch of boulders in the Swann Range.

AS15-90-12179 (OF300) ( 137k or 1168k )
145:07:16 Jim has started a pan at Station 6a, starting with this down-Sun showing the Rover at the upper left with the footprints he made walking across the steep slope. Hill 305 is beyond the rille on the right.
AS15-90-12180 (OF300) ( 127k or 916k )
145:07:16 Rightward of 12179. The rille's turn to the west that is prominent in this image occurs almost due west of the North Complex, as can be seen on LTO41B4S1(50) ( 6.1 Mb ).
AS15-90-12181 (OF300) ( 135k or 940k )
145:07:16 Rightward of 12180. The rille's turn to the west noted in the previous caption is above center. Spur Crater is in the middle distance, with the rim boulder clearly visible, as indicated in a detail. As indicated in Figure 5-98 from the Apollo 15 Preliminary Science Report, Dave parked about 45 meters east of the boulder.
AS15-90-12182 (OF300) ( 146k or 982k )
145:07:16 Rightward of 12181. The rille's turn to the west noted in the previous caption is above center. The LM is marked in a detail ( 129k, with Pluton Crater beyond it.
AS15-90-12183 (OF300) ( 154k or 1000k )
145:07:16 Rightward of 12182. Dune Crater is labeled in a detail (136k ).
AS15-90-12184 (OF300) ( 165k or 1010k )
145:07:16 Rightward of 12183, showing most of the craters of the South Cluster.
AS15-90-12185 (OF300) ( 177k or 1024k )
145:07:16 Rightward of 12184, showing most of the craters of the South Cluster. The craters of the Arrowhead are above center.
AS15-90-12186 (OF300) ( 176k or 1006k )
145:07:16 Rightward of 12185, with Mt Hadley dominating the horizon.
AS15-90-12187 (OF300) ( 199k or 1126k )
145:07:16 Rightward of 12186, with the green boulder at the lower right, Mt. Hadley in the distance on the right, and the Swann Range on the right.
Stereo Portrait of Mount Hadley ( 0.3 Mb )
Yuri Krasilnikov has created this anaglyph from frames 12208-9 taken at Station 7 and 12186-7 taken at Station 6. The images have been geometrically transformed using HUGIN software for perspective correction.
AS15-90-12188 (OF300) ( 173k or 1005k )
145:07:16 Rightward of 12187, with the Station 6a boulder in the foreground and the Swann Range in the distance.
AS15-90-12189 (OF300) ( 194k or 1104k )
145:07:16 Rightward of 12188. Up-Sun view into the Swann Range.
AS15-90-12190 (OF300) ( 211k or 1183k )
145:07:16 Rightward of 12189. Up-Sun view into the Swann Range with some of Jim's footprints in the foreground.
AS15-90-12191 (OF300) ( 185k or 1055k )
145:07:16 Rightward of 12190, looking along the Rover tracks which give a good indication of the undulation of the tracks.
AS15-90-12192 (OF300) ( 202k or 1114k )
145:07:16 Rightward of 12191. Note that we are seeing a single set of Rover tracks, one track for each of the four wheels. The rear wheels do not exactly track the front wheels and create tracks slightly offset from those made by the front wheels. Note the downhill sloughing of material disturbed by the wheels, particuarly from crater rims.
AS15-90-12193 (OF300) ( 206k or 1084k )
145:07:16 Rightward of 12192. Good close-up of downhill sloughing on the right. Because Jim collected few small rocks with the rake at the various stops on the flank of Mt. Hadley Delta, it seems likely that we are seeing dirt clods in the sloughed material.
AS15-90-12194 (OF300) ( 176k or 927k )
145:09:18 Rightward of 12193. Note that there is a slight jump in the pan sequence between this photo and the prior one, and this may correspond to Dave's request to Jim that he watch Dave back the Rover up so that he can repark it below and to the east of the boulder. After watching Dave, Jim then resumed his pan. In this picture, we can see the multiple Rover tracks Dave just made while he was backing and turning.
AS15-90-12195 (OF300) ( 190k or 949k )
145:09:18 Rightward of 12194.
AS15-90-12196 (OF300) ( 168k or 901k )
145:09:18 Rightward of 12195. The footprints Dave made after dismounting are above center on the far side of the Rover tracks. Jim's are on the near side.

Journal Contributor Gary Swearingen calls attention to the mini-landslides triggered by Jim's footsteps as he made his way down from the original Rover parking spot. A detail ( 419k ) focuses on the sequence of footprints and suggests that, initially, Jim put one foot in front of the other, staying on a single level but, eventually, stepped down with his left boot and had his feet on different levels. Swearingen calls particular attention to the mini-landslide associated with the bootprints below the center of the image. The soil in that slides looks like it may have moved as a unit.

In response to a January 2006 e-mail about the mini-landslides, Apollo soil mechanics investigator David Carrier wrote, "You have started the New Year off with an interesting question!"

"Actually, our soil mechanics team noticed the same bootprints: see Figure 7-12 (AS15-90-12197) on p. 7-12 of the Apollo 15 Preliminary Science Report. They were discussed briefly in a section of the report concerning slope stability, pp. 7-9 to 7-12: 'A preliminary study of the 70- and 500-mm photography available thus far has been made for evidence of slope instability and past slope failures. No indication exist of previous deep-seated slope failures of the type that have been suggested by Lunar Orbiter photos of some areas of the Moon. The near-surface zones of some slopes may be near incipient failure, however. The foreground of figure 7-12 shows failure under footprints as one of the astronauts traversed the slope in the vicinity of station 6A. Detailed analysis of conditions in this area must await more precise determination of the slope angle, which is estimated to be 10 deg to 20 deg.' And the caption of Figure 7-12 reads: 'Incipient slope failure as indicated by slipping out of soil beneath astronauts' feet.'"

"As I recall, we did not pursue a more detailed analysis."

"The photo in Figure 7-12 of the report is identified as AS15-90-12197 (and, because it is part of a panoramic sequence) it would be interesting to (use adjacent images) under a stereoscope - which I no longer have! - and get a somewhat distorted stereoscopic view. It would certainly help with estimating the slope angle."

Journal Contributor Erik van Meijgaarden has combined 12196 and 12197 in the anaglyph linked below.

Carrier continues, "My impression is that there is a slight break in the slope near the closest LRV track. That is, the LRV drove along an area that was slightly flatter, and that immediately downslope from the nearest track, there is a slight local steepening. Then, when Jim Irwin walked along the track, straddling it, one foot was on the flatter area - which was pretty soft anyhow, as you can see from the depth of the bootprints - and one foot was on the top - or 'shoulder' - of the slightly steeper slope. So, his downhill bootprints caused the soil to shear and slide outward, rather than simply compress the soil downward. I agree with you that the downhill boot would be somewhat heavier than the uphill. As for the difference between the two closest downhill bootprints, it might be due to: (1) Simply a slight difference in where he placed his boot with respect to the top of the local slope; or (2) That he rotated his boot downhill in the closest bootprint, causing some fines to move over the blocky material, making it look smooth; or a combination of both."

AS15-90-12198 (OF300) ( 137k or 867k )
145:09:18 Rightward of 12197 showing the far (west) end of the Rover tracks. This frame ends Jim's Station 6a pan.
AS15-90-12199 (OF300) ( 146k or 914k )
145:12:18 Jim was careful to keep his shadow off the Station 6a boulder in this down-Sun, which is the first image in a stereopair. The rille and Hill 305 are in the distance on the right.
AS15-90-12200 (OF300) ( 121k or 850k )
145:12:18 Stereo-companion to 12199. Jim stepped to his right and a bit downhill.
AS15-90-12201 (OF300) ( 121k or 850k )
145:28:12 Jim has started a pan at Station 7. Note the large boulder in the background. Dave will sample this boulder just before they leave the station.

In December 2005, I wondered if I could find the Genesis Rock in this down-Sun and, after checking Jim's down-Sun, 12227, taken before they collected it, I had no trouble locating it, as indicated in a comparison of details from both images ( 142k ). Note that I have used Photoshop Elements to adjust levels in both images to emphasize the white areas that caught Jim's attention.

AS15-90-12202 (OF300) ( 104k or 761k )
145:28:12 Rightward of 12201, showing Hadley Rille and Hill 305.

145:28:12 Rightward of 12213. The Station 6a is two fiducial marks up and one to the right of center. The Rover tracks can be followed most of the way down, as can be seen in a labeled detail ( 646k ) which has been level-adjusted to highlight the tracks. The place where the tracks almost reach the right edge of the picture may be where Jim climbed on.
AS15-90-12215 (OF300) ( 151k or 787k )
145:28:12 Rightward of 12214. Showing some of the back of the Rover and some Jim's footprints. The Station 6a boulder is near the top center.

145:28:12 Rightward of 12217, showing Dave using the sighting scope on the hi-gain antenna. The TV camera is poinited down toward the right, front wheel. Farther aft, note the maps mounted on the mast supporting the DAC.
AS15-90-12219 (OF300) ( 153k or 771k )
145:28:12Rightward of 12218, centered on Dave as he uses the sighting scope. This may be the best picture in the Apollo collection of the sighting scope being used. A detail may show, circled on the right, a small rip in the outer thermal layer of Dave's PLSS that Jim mentions during the EVA-2 close-out at 149:03:02 and a small patch, circled on the left, that may represent abrasion against the left side of Dave's seat back frame.
AS15-90-12220 (OF300) ( 142k or 787k)
145:28:12 Jim's Station 7 Pan. Rightward of 12219. Dave using the sighting scope to point the high-gain antenna at Earth.

145:34:52 Jim has stepped to his left to take this stereo companion to 12223. Dave has finished his pictures and has the tongs open in his right hand. Note the sample bags hanging from the bottom of his camera. Ron Wells has provided a detail ( a15det12224.jpg ) showing Dave's watch. Ron writes that he increased the contrast in the lefthand version and used a contouring program to search for edges in producing the righthand version. A group of ALSJ Contributors see the watch reading either 9:08 to 9:10 or 10:08 to 10:12. Readers can make their own assessments. On the assumption that Jim took 12224 just before his reply to Dave at 145:34:52, the time in Houston is about 10:09 CDT on the morning of 1 August 1971.
AS15-90-12225 (OF300) ( 127k or 769k)

Magazine 91/M (Color) Frames 12329-12405

Some images are currently available only as low-resolution scans provided by NASA Johnson in the mid-1990s. The individual scans have TARGA filenames. Markus Mehring has compiled cross-references between those filenames and the NASA photo ID designations customarily used. Other images are available as higher resolution scans from prints and, unless otherwise credited, were provided by Kipp Teague. Beginning in 2004, NASA began to provide scans from original film and, as they become available to the ALSJ, we are using them to replace all prior versions. The raw scans have been processed by Kipp Teague and are presented at 300 dpi equivalent and are labeled "OF300".
Ed Hengeveld has provided a set of thumbnails images ( 1 Mb ) made from low-resolution scans provided by Glen Swanson of NASA Johnson.

Worden, command module pilot of the Apollo 15 lunar landing mission, floats in space outside the spacecraft during his trans-Earth extravehicular activity (EVA). This photograph was taken from a frame of motion picture film exposed by the 16mm Maurer camera mounted in the hatch of the Command Module (CM). During his EVA Worden made an inspection of the Service Module's (SM) Scientific Instrument Module (SIM) bay and retrieved the film cassettes from the Panoramic Camera and the Mapping Camera. The SIM bay holds eight orbital science experiments. The EVA occurred when the spacecraft was homeward bound approximately 171,000 nautical miles from Earth."
