- AS16-113-18294 shows Apollo 16's CSM Casper above Valier (lower left corner) and Dufay B' (near the upper right corner). The dark "triangle" in the upper right corner is the silhouette of LM Orions window-margin. - DannyCaes Dec 7, 2007
- HiRes scan of Lunar Orbiter II's frame LO-II 034 h2 which shows Valier (south up).
- Apollo 12's orbital photographs AS12-54-7955, 7956, and 7957 don't show Valier (erroneously mentioned in the LPI's caption). These photographs show Vesalius M (unofficially called Eskola during the heydays of the Apollo project).
