Newest Lunar Map Enhanced

Found this one today and it is incredible. The detail enhancement a huge upgrade. Surveyor Mission landing zones for Surveyor 3, 5, and 6 noted and mapped. Apollo 11, 12, 14 and 16 landing zones also noted. Crater impact, ranges and ejecta color coded. Ejecta blanket perimeter circled in black. Hope someone appreciates this map.

Does anyone remember which Apollo Mission placed the mirrors on the Moon surface to reflect back to Earth? The mirrors have been utilized quite frequently for distance measurments (ping of a different measurement than SiMPLE....) and oscillation of the Moon. I thought it was Apollo 11 but cannot remember..........
I was hoping to see it noted on the map.

Re: Newest Lunar Map Enhanced

You guys ROCK!!!!
I did not know there was 5 individual reflective locations. I only remember the first one, where the intent was to shoot a laser there and back, from Earth, to measure the timeline for the return ping, and calculate the distance from the Earth with higher accuracy. THANKS for the second map too. Fabulous!!
