A wonderful reproduction of Apollo 11's orbital Hasselblad frame AS11-40-5844 (craters Hartmann and Green) is seen on page 195 of Norman Mailer's book MOONFIRE, THE EPIC JOURNEY OF APOLLO 11. Because of contrast-enhancement, both craters are very well noticeable, which isn't the case on the original Hasselblad film (no shadows due to the sun's altitude).

Additional Information

Considered to be Copernican by Wilhelms but Moore and McEwen (LPSC XXVII, #1450), point out that apparently WIlhelms misidentified Green as Hartmann.


  • Named for Johannes Franz Hartmann (January 11, 1865 - September 13, 1936), a German physicist and astronomer.
  • Perhaps interesting to know: a certain R. M. Hartmann is mentioned on page 149 in Mysterious Universe, a handbook of astronomical anomalies (William R. Corliss, The Sourcebook Project, 1979). See article Evidence of an Ephemeral Earth Satellite (John P. Bagby, Nature, 1966). - DannyCaes Apr 7, 2015
