Lunar crater. Apollo 17 orbital photograph showing the large crater Sarabhai (formerly called Bessel A, left), located in the Mare Serenitatis ('sea of serenity') region of the Moon. Many other impact craters, the result of collisions with objects in space, are visible. A smaller and relatively young crater at upper right is believed to be less than a billion years old. Apollo 17 was the 11th and last (as of 2007) lunar landing. The lunar module LM-12 Challenger touched down in Mare Serenitatis at 02:23 UTC (universal time) on 11th December 1972. The crew members were Eugene Cernan, Harrison 'Jack' Schmitt and Ronald Evans.
