Apollo 11: The Apollo 11 Lunar Module separated from the Command Module (while in lunar orbit) and ready to descend to the Moon's surface. Astronauts Edwin Aldrin and Neil Armstrong are in the Lunar Module. Astronaut Michael Collins remained in lunar orbit with the Command Module to await return of Aldrin and Armstrong.

Apollo 11: Another view of the Apollo 11 Lunar Module separated from the Command Module (while in lunar orbit) and ready to descend to the Moon's surface. Astronauts Edwin Aldrin and Neil Armstrong are in the Lunar Module. Astronaut Michael Collins remained in lunar orbit with the Command Module to await return of Aldrin and Armstrong.

Apollo 14: The Apollo 14 Lunar Module on the Moon. Astronauts Alan Shepard and Edgar Mitchell had already deployed the U.S. flag and other items. Note the laser ranging retro reflector at foot of the Landing Module ladder. The crumpled gold foil, used as thermal shielding of the Module, was removed when items were unloaded. Astronaut Stuart Roosa remained in the Command Module in lunar orbit, awaiting the return of Shepard and Mitchell.

Apollo 17: Astronaut Eugene Cernan makes a short checkout of the Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) during early part of the Apollo 17 extravehicular activity (EVA) at the lunar landing site. This photo of the Lunar Rover is prior to loading it up with equipment and was taken by astronaut Harrison H. Schmitt.

Apollo 17: Ascent stage of the Apollo 17 Lunar Module during return of astronauts Cernan and Schmitt to the Command Module (in lunar orbit) at end of Moon surface landing. The large, square opening seen in the photo is the hatch for ingress to and egress from the 2-man crew cabin. Photo was taken by astronaut Ronald Evans in the Command Module.

Apollo 15: The battery-powered, 4-wheeled Lunar Rover during the Apollo 15 landing on the Moon. It was driven for a total of 27.8 km in 3 hours of driving time. The longest single traverse it made was 12.5 km and the maximum distance it reached from the Luner Module was 5.0 km.

Apollo 17: Earth seen from Apollo 17 traveling to the Moon. Photo extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the Antarctic polar ice cap. Note heavy clouds over Southern Hemisphere. A part of Africa is visible. The Arabian Peninsula is seen at the northeastern edge of Africa. The large island off east coast of Africa is the Malagasy Republic.
