AS13-62-8909 shows Apollo 13's Command Module Odyssey (left) and craters Schliemann' and Chaplygin (near centre), and also Marconi (a little bit "above" the white end of LM Aquariuss antenna). Although Apollo 13 was the most troubled one of Project Apollo's nine lunar flights, its crew made some spectacular orbital Hasselblad photographs of the moon's Far-Side craters! Image AS13-62-8909 is one of them. - DannyCaes Dec 13, 2007
