About This Image

This is a portion of the first closeup photographer of the crater Copernicus, one of the most porminent features on the face of the Moon.

Detailed caption label on verso.

Provenance: From the collection of George Keene. Keene headed the team responsible for visually mapping the moon during the Apollo program. Keene’s work on the Lunar Orbiter project yielded images of the moon’s surface that were unprecedented in their precision and sharpness, and it was these images that enabled NASA to determine where it would be possible for man to land on the moon. In addition to their historical significance, these photographs are spectacular in their clarity.
