Apollo Landing Sites Home

Six manned spacecraft have landed on the Moon.  I am collecting images of the places where they landed.  
Click on the image of the Moon to see the close-up picture of the landing site.

Three men went on each mission.  The Commander and the Lunar Module Pilot went down to the surface leaving the Command Module Pilot circling the Moon ready to receive them on their return.  Thus six men were left orbitting the Moon whilst twelve went down to the surface.  These six men must have seen more of the far side of the Moon than anyone else.
