LUNAR LANDMARK PHOTO TARGET TRAINING MAPS.
FOR FLIGHT USE AND SUPPORT CREW TRAINING .
"Landmark target 1, 2, and 3. January 31, 1971. ED. MSC-1." Lithographed photographic target maps, four sheets, 10½ x 8 inches. Varying scales.
Each sheet has a high oblique angle lunar surface image taken during Apollo 12 to assist training for Apollo 14. The Fra Mauro landing site of Apollo 14 was some 110 miles east of Apollo 12's landing site, thus many of that flight's orbital images were useful for "14." The CSM orbital track for revolution 16 is plotted on three of the sheets. Lunar Module Antares landed as scheduled just two orbits prior (revolution 14). The CSM flight plan called for "zero phase observations" (sun light coming from directly behind the CSM) at this time. Included is a photocopy of page 3-128 from the Apollo 14 Flight Plan listing events for the CSM zero phase activities planned during lunar revolution 16.
SIGNED by EDGAR MITCHELL and INSCRIBED: "Check points for a lunar landing... Apollo 14, Feb 1971" along the upper margin of sheet one.
