  • Apollo 15's post-sunrise Fairchild camera photograph AS15-M-0421 shows almost the whole of Montes Archimedes. Note the arc-like tendency of the three main components of these mountains. It's as if this interrupted ring's centre is located somewhere near the upper right corner of the frame (only one fifth of the complete ring structure is visible).
