Apollo 11 stereo view showing stone embedded in powdery lunar surface
An Apollo 11 stereo view showing a stone, about two and one-half inches long, embedded in the powdery lunar surface material. The little pieces closely around it suggest that it has suffered some erosion. On the surface several small pits are seen, mostly less than one-eighth inch in size, and with a glazed surface. They have a raised rim, characteristic of pits made by high-velocity micrometeorite impact. The exposure was made by the Apollo 11 35mm stereo close-up camera.
