Boethius (Dubyago U) was captured near the right margin of the oblong panoramic ITEK-camera frame AS15-P-9781, and also near the central part of the upper margin in the mapping/metric Fairchild-camera frame AS15-M-0935. The bright "glow" below the central part of this Fairchild-frame is the lunar surface's strong retro-reflection ("Heiligenschein").
