Description:

Alan Bean (American, b. 1932) and Pete Conrad (American, 1930-1999)
Re-photographed panoramic views at Halo Crater and Triple Craters, EVA 2, Apollo 12, November 1969. Numbered 'NASA S-70-24310' (NASA MSC) in black on the recto u.l. margin. Vintage gelatin silver print, sheet size 8 x 10 in. (20.9 x 25.3 cm), unmatted.
Condition: Minor wear to l.l. corner of sheet.

N.B. These rare panoramic views were assembled from 8 x 10 inch prints numbered AS12-49-7293 to AS12-49-7304 and AS12-49-7201 to AS12-49-7207 by the Mapping Sciences Laboratory at the Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston and then photographed for use by scientists. The Sun illuminates the lunar surface near Halo Crater in a scene captured by Alan Bean during the last stop before arriving at the location of Surveyor 3 (top). The shadow of the photographer Pete Conrad appears in the lunar landscape, captured during the EVA's first stop at the Triple Craters location just west of Head Crater (bottom).
Estimate $400-600
