(21-27 Dec. 1968) — This photograph is a view looking south toward the lunar horizon. The bright-rayed crater in the foreground is located at approximately 30 degrees south latitude and 110 degrees east longitude on the farside of the moon. This is another example of a bright rayed crater which the astronauts photographed during the Apollo 8 lunar orbit mission. This type of feature readily stands out in the Apollo 8 photographs because it was photographed at a high sun angle.
