S69-54553 (October 1969) --- If the Apollo 12 launch is postponed until Nov. 16, 1969, the lunar landing will be made in this area in the Sea of Storms. (The prime launch window is Nov. 14, 1969, at 11:22 a.m. (EST), landing at Site 7.) This site (Site 5) is located at 41 degrees 40 minutes west longitude and 1 degree 40 minutes north latitude. This photograph was taken by Lunar Orbiter 3 on Feb. 21, 1967, at an altitude of 32 miles (51.8 kilometers) above the moon. This view is looking west with the sun almost directly behind the spacecraft. These approximates show the landing site as it will look to Apollo astronauts as they approach the site. The actual target site is represented by the ellipse which measures three by five miles. The lines indicate coordinates on the moon near the target site.
