HI Mate! I'm new and maybe lucky. This is obviously a rover landing site. Apollo: Why not? I am looking for all the landing sites of Apollo, and there is no answer. Anyone could help uncover the source?

Hey Skyfinder,
The link you're looking for is http://target.lroc.asu.edu/da/qmap.html

Click on "layers" then click on " lroc featured images ." Little dots show up that you can click to get more info on the spot.
You must zoom in to navigate the map , you may want to unclick the color shaded relief once you zoom in . There is a map with all the landing sites on the moon here http://www.lpi.usra.edu/resources/mapcatalog/LandingSite/index.html
:cool:

Oh, Thats the Apollo 15 lander I think .

Welcome to CosmoQuest, Skyfinder! Perhaps this FAQ section with an annotated Apollo 15 landing site image (http://cosmoquest.org/Moon_Mappers:_FAQ#I.27ve_found_lots_of_things_at_t he_Apollo_15_landing_site._What_are_they.3F) helps you...
