Lot Details
SURVEYOR III.
The number 2 footpad of Surveyor III, photographed by Alan Bean, November 20, 1969, gelatin silver print, 19¼ x 19¼ inches sight (490 x 490 mm), window-mounted.

The crew of Apollo 12 visited Surveyor III during their second moonwalk. Surveyor III had landed on the Moon on April 20, 1967, and on landing the craft hopped and slid a short distance. Even after over 2½ years, the waffle-like footprint was clearly visible, showing that there are no significant depositional or erosional processes affecting the lunar surface on this time scale. The footpad is roughly a 12 inches in diameter. Part of the sampling arm can be seen at upper left.
