View of approach to Apollo Landing Site 2 in southwestern Sea of Tranquility
The approach to Apollo Landing Site 2 in southwestern Sea of Tranquility is seen in this photograph taken from the Apollo 11 Lunar Module (LM) in lunar orbit. When this picture was made, the LM was still docked to the Command and Service Modules. Site 2 is located just right of center at the edge of darkness. The crater Maskelyne is the large one at the lower right. Hypatia Rille (U.S.1) is at upper left, with the crater Moltke just to the right (north) of it. Sidewinder Rille and Diamondback Rille extend from left to right across the center of the picture. This view looks generally west.
