AS12-51-7552 (November 1969) --- A high oblique view of the moon, looking northwest over the Ocean of Storms (right) and the more rugged area around the crater Kepler A (out of view at left). The distinct crater in the mare at right center is Milichius A. The center of the terrain pictured is located at 11 degrees north latitude and 32.5 degrees west longitude. While astronauts Charles Conrad Jr., commander, and Alan L. Bean, lunar module pilot, descended in the Lunar Module (LM) "Intrepid" to explore the Ocean of Storms region of the moon, astronaut Richard F. Gordon Jr., command module pilot, remained with the Command and Service Modules (CSM) "Yankee Clipper" in lunar orbit.
