- Although the LPI has no search list for orbital Apollo photographs which show crater Harden, it was photographed during several missions of project Apollo!- DannyCaes Jan 10, 2010
- The typical bowl/cone-shape of crater Harden is noticeable on Apollo 16's orbital ITEK-panoramic frame AS16-P-4193. Harden was captured a little bit to the left of the frame's centre.
- Harden's partially illuminated interior and sunlit eastern inner slopes were captured on Apollo 16's ITEK-frames AS16-P-4757 and AS16-P-4762. Harden is seen on the "left half" of both frames.
- A small mountain located slightly westward of Harden was captured on Apollo 16's ITEK-frame AS16-P-4761. Note the shallow depression at the summit!
- Another look at this mountain is Apollo 16's ITEK-frame AS16-P-4932.
