AS16-P-5540 is one of Apollo 16's TEC (Trans Earth Coast) photographs of Mobius', made with the panoramic ITEK-camera aboard CSM Caspers SIM-bay. In this photograph, Mobius was captured near the frame's centre.

The swirl formation at the southwestern part of Mobius's floor
This curious swirl was captured on Apollo 17's orbital ITEK-panoramic photographs AS17-P-1859, AS17-P-1861, AS17-P-1866, and AS17-P-1868 (scroll all the way toward the right margins of all four frames).

Additional Information


- August Ferdinand Möbius (November 17, 1790 - September 26, 1868) was a German mathematician and theoretical astronomer. He is best known for his discovery of the Möbius strip, a non-orientable two-dimensional surface with only one side when embedded in three-dimensional Euclidean space. It was independently discovered by Johann Benedict Listing around the same time. Möbius was the first to introduce homogeneous coordinates into projective geometry. Möbius transformations, important in projective geometry, are not to be confused with the Möbius transform of number theory, which also bears his name.
- This crater's name should not be confused with Moebius (Jean Giraud/ Gir): French comics artist.- DannyCaes May 7, 2011
