Us-Moon-Farside-lunar

This 1968 NASA file image shows a view of the far side of lunar surface as taken from the Apollo 8 spacecraft looking southward from high altitude across the Southern Sea. The dark floored crater near the middle of the right side of the photograph is about 70 kilometers (45 statute miles) in diameter. Both features are beyond the eastern limb of the Moon as viewed from earth; neither has a name. AFP PHOTO/ NASA / AFP PHOTO / NASA / NASA

EDITORS COMMENTS
This photo print, taken by NASA's Apollo 8 spacecraft in 1968, offers a mesmerizing view of the far side of the lunar surface. From a high altitude perspective, we are granted an extraordinary glimpse into the mysteries that lie beyond our earthly reach. The image showcases the Southern Sea region as seen from a unique vantage point, with its vastness stretching out before us. In this remarkable shot, our attention is drawn to a prominent dark floored crater situated near the middle of the right side of the photograph. Spanning approximately 70 kilometers (45 statute miles) in diameter, this enigmatic feature remains nameless to this day. Both this intriguing crater and the surrounding landscape exist beyond what can be observed from Earth's eastern limb. The square-shaped composition adds symmetry and balance to this awe-inspiring scene while emphasizing its astronomical significance. As we delve deeper into space exploration and astronautics, images like these serve as reminders of humanity's relentless pursuit to uncover celestial secrets. This stunning print serves as a testament to NASA's commitment to unraveling the mysteries of our universe and inspires us all to continue pushing boundaries in our quest for knowledge about outer space.
