I’m reasonably certain anyone wanting their fill of Apollo 11 has been thoroughly satisfied with the coverage of the 50th anniversary of the Moon Landing. I vaguely remember it but — as I’ve mentioned before — to my then 16-year-old eyes and expectations, it didn’t seem that extraordinary.
I mean, yes; amazing that we went to the moon, but — at the time — it was a foregone conclusion that it would happen. Not only that, many assumed that it was just a precursor to us going to the stars (and no, I don’t mean the Kardashians . . . they weren’t a thing back then).
We know the rest of the story . . . but, perhaps, when you have a chance and you remember to do so, raise your eyes and really look at the moon.
It was surprisingly difficult finding simple references to locating the landing site. Many of NASA’s photos of the site are close-ups and my cursory look didn’t land me on any page that explained where to look when staring up at the Moon . . . hence this post.
I used a combination of sources to map the site as accurately as I could on my photo. Here’s a close-up.
I could be (on that scale) a millimeter or two off from the exact location. I triangulated a number of photos using surrounding terrain features and intersected a number of lines to come up with that spot.
HERE is a neat photo from NASA that shows the footprints path the crew left on their visit.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
