Roberto Beltramini writes, "Animation showing the flight of Apollo 17's geology hammer thrown by LMP Harrison Schmitt at the end of EVA-3, based on 3 still photos taken in succession by CDR Gene Cernan. I cropped and rotated the images to match the same scene, and aligned them to the estimated lunar horizon."
