    Smile Apollo 15 Landing Site?



    While I know the general area of the landing site, but I'd like to be a bit more specific. Have I got it right? Sorry about the poor quality of the photo!

    Thanks Al (Alsetalokin), your comments in a previous post got me doing a bit more research.

    In the shadow of Mount Hadley, near/within the Palus Putridinus...I love that name. Sometimes this feature looks like a jawbone with teeth.

    That sure looks like a dangerous place to land a spacecraft, though.

    It would be nice if they updated the site with the new LRO images, in which you can actually see the LEMs, other equipment, and "footprints" of the landing sites.
