Apollo 15

Apollo 15 – Landed 30 July 1971

Apollo 15 landed alongside Hadley Rille and was the first mission to utilise the lunar rover.

Find the crater Archimedes.

Draw a line from the middle of Archimedes south-east perpendicular to the bright Apennine Mountains.

Jump north-east to the next alcove in the mountain range to find the Apollo 15 landing site.

If you are able to resolve Hadley Rille (the sinuous feature) you can follow it north to where it sharply bends west to find the spot more precisely.

The two moonwalkers were Dave Scott and Jim Irwin, with Al Worden in lunar orbit.
