I wonder if the crew knew they were crossing the moon.

Probably a NASA contract to pick up the discarded bits of Eagle, et al... leaving junk on the face of our nocturnal friend, tsk tsk...

Super pic Mudman!

Hi Mudman,

I sent you a PM. But the crew involved have been sent a copy of this picture and they appreciate it.
