LPOD Photo Gallery Lunar Orbiter Images Apollo Images Are there really no surface photographs of this crater? Apollo 16's Station 8 seems to have been very near the eastern part of its rim. I have to take a look in David M. Harland's EXPLORING THE MOON, or in Eric M. Jones's online APOLLO LUNAR SURFACE JOURNAL. - DannyCaes Oct 31, 2016

Additional Information

The Landing Site Name "Wreck" is plotted on Site Traverses chart 78D2S2.
Exploring YouTube is a most entertaining experience. Especially when one is looking for topics such as MOON and APOLLO.
Certain people on our planet really want to see a wreck at the lunar craterlet called Wreck. Or... they just want to dream about some sort of "possible" presence of a wreck up there, or the presence of a whole lot of "wrecks". Those people have only one goal: to try to prove the so-called existence of remains of alien spaceships on the moon...
Other people say: there are indeed wrecks on the moon, all of them from our own planet... (metallic leftovers and junk from unmanned and manned spaceflights in the sixties and seventies).
A third class of people is not so sure about that: according to them there's absolutely nothing artificial on the moon because unmanned and manned spaceflight missions don't exist... (it should be said: this class is still stuck in the dark days of the mediaeval times).
