Apollo 14

Apollo 14 – Landed 5 February 1971

After the failure of Apollo 13, all eyes were on the Apollo 14 mission, which touched down in the Fra Mauro formation.

Look for the large crater Ptolemaeus and locate the Herschel crater just above it.

Travelling west by north-west should lead you to the crater, Lalonde.

Drawing a straight line from the centre of Herschel crater through the south edge of Lalonde crater and travel 1.5 times the distance again to reach the Apollo 14 landing site.

The two moonwalkers were Al Shepard and Ed Mitchell, with Stu Roosa in lunar orbit.
