The Moon from Apollo 8
April 23, 2003
This oblique photograph looks generally northwest from the Apollo 8 spacecraft into the Sea of Tranquility. The three prominent craters are Taruntis F in the lower right corner; Taruntis E in the center; and Cauchy between the two linear features. The Cauchy scarp, this side of the Cauchy crater, is formed by one to three faults stepped down toward the spacecraft.
