Interesting to know: during the mission of Apollo 17 in december 1972, craters Hartwig and Schluter (and their environs) were photographed in earthlight (earthshine). During the whole time of Apollo 17's exploration, the direct sunlight never reached Hartwig and Schluter. The earthlight photographs are included in Apollo 17's Magazine 161-ZZ (35mm NIKON B&W photographs), see: Sheet 8 of A17's Index Maps. Some of those photographs were reproduced in the Apollo 17 Preliminary Science Report.
