AS12-54-8118 (November 1969) --- A black and white view of the lunar surface as photographed from the Apollo 12 Command and Service Modules (CSM). This area featuring a number of relatively small craters is just south of a larger crater named Reiner A. Principal point coordinates are located at 3.5 degrees north latitude and 51 degrees west longitude. A handheld 70mm camera was used to record the image. 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.
