Apollo 16 Approaches Lunar Landing
May 8, 2003
The Apollo 16 Command and Service Modules (CSM), as seen from the Lunar Module (LM, out of view) above terrain on the lunar farside. The two spacecraft had just undocked. The LM and CSM were out of communication at the time of this photograph's exposure, but shortly acquired the signal as they moved separately to the earth side of the moon.
