Apollo 11

Apollo 11 – Landed 20 July 1969

The first mission to land mankind on the Moon was Apollo 11, touching down in the Sea of Tranquillity.

Look for the largest nearby crater, Theophilus.

Following almost directly north will lead you to the smaller but distinct crater, Moltke.

The landing site is situated just north-west of the crater.

For bonus points see if you can locate the three small craters, Armstrong, Collins, and Aldrin, named after the Apollo 11 astronauts.

The two moonwalkers were Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, with Michael Collins in lunar orbit.
