Apollo 15 Lands Safely on the Moon
May 6, 2003
A view of Hadley Delta, looking southeasterly, as photographed from the top hatch of the Apollo 15 Lunar Module by Astronaut David R. Scott during his stand-up extravehicular activity just after the Lunar Module "Falcon" touched down at the Hadly Apennine landing site. The prominent feature on the horizon in the center of the picture was called Silver Spur by the Apollo 15 crewmen. Hadley Delta mountain rises approximately 4,000 meters (about 13,124 feet) above the plain.
