Apollo 17: A Stereo View from Lunar Orbit
Gene Cernan, Apollo 17, NASA; Anaglyph by Patrick Vantuyne

Explanation: Get out your red/blue glasses and check out this awesome stereo view of another world. The scene was recorded by Apollo 17 mission commander Eugene Cernan on December 11, 1972, one orbit before descending to land on the Moon. The stereo anaglyph was assembled from two photographs (AS17-147-22465, AS17-147-22466) captured from his vantage point on board the Lunar Module Challenger as he and Dr. Harrison Schmitt flew over Apollo 17’s landing site in the Taurus-Littrow Valley. The broad, sunlit face of the mountain dubbed South Massif rises near the center of the frame, above the dark floor of Taurus-Littrow to its left. Beyond the mountains, toward the lunar limb, lies the Moon’s Mare Serenitatis. Piloted by Ron Evans, the Command Module America is visible in orbit in the foreground against the South Massif’s peak.

阿波罗17号: 环月轨道上的立体照片

说明:拿出你的红蓝眼镜,看下另一个世界震撼的立体视图。1972年12月11日,阿波罗17号任务指挥长Eugene Cernan在下降登月前一圈的轨道上记录了这个场景。立体视图由两张照片 (AS17-147-22465, AS17-147-22466)组合而成,是在他和Harrison Schmitt博士乘坐挑战者号登月舱飞越阿波罗17号位于金牛-利特罗峡谷的着陆点时,从一个很好的角度拍摄的。画面中心附近被太阳照亮的是South Massif山宽阔的山坡, 山体则从左侧暗黑的金牛-利特罗谷底升起。群山之后一直到月面边缘都是澄海。在South Massif主峰背景的前面,可以看到由Ron Evans驾驶的美国号指令舱。
