Viewing Apollo Landing Sites from Earth
Lecture no. 2 from the course: Apollo 11: Lessons for All Time
Taught by Professor Robert M. Hazen and 3 others | 18 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses
Join Ed Murphy, professor and astronomer, to go outside and really view the Moon—the complex geology, mountains, lava flows, volcanic domes, and more. Discover and recognize what you can and can’t see with your naked eye, binoculars, and a telescope, as well as learn the best time to view the Moon. Once you’ve established the Moon’s topography, Professor Murphy shows you how to orient your viewing to the location of the Apollo 11 landing and what, exactly, you are seeing.
