Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter explores the Apollo 17 landing site. 

NASA has just released these images from the lunar orbiter showing an exploration of the Apollo 17 landing site from only 72,000 feet above the surface of the moon.

This is awesome! You can see the lander, tracks from their excursions, the flag shadow … very cool.

This image is owned by Jerry Hayes, a local photographer who graciously allowed me to reprint it on my blog. Please do not steal it and reprint it without attribution. He is selling prints on his website, so think about rewarding this work of art!)
