What's interesting is that there's a large discrepancy between the view shown in the simulation during the broadcast (Ebb & Flow being very close together) and what's shown on Eyes on the Solar System (Ebb & Flow being > 1600 miles apart).

Obviously one of them is off, but which one? (My guess is the simulation during the broadcast is correct, but I don't know..)

Now maybe we can find a good site for Moon base Alpha.  Let's get on with it.

LM: Flying low enough in basins that they were below mountain level; had to maneuver up to leave basin.
