Lunar Photographs Supplement 213

Ranger 7 gave man his first close look at the moon on July 31, 1964. It returned this early view of lunar terrain at 8:10 A.M. EST, televised by camera B when the space craft was 1240 miles above the plain on which it crashed 16 minutes and 2 seconds later. The area shown measures 275 miles from left to right and 213 miles from top to bottom. The craters on the right are foreshortened by low-camera angle. The black corner marks that divide the picture into small squares reveal any artificial distortion that may have been introduced.
