ASU video of Apollo 17 lunar landing site

The ASU team running the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) released a cool video last week of the Apollo 17 landing site, showing the lunar module descent stage, the Apollo 17 lunar surface experiments package, the U.S. flag, and the lunar rover. You can see the astronauts foot trails across the lunar surface.

The Apollo 17 mission included the only geologist to walk on the moon, Harrison "Jack" Schmitt.
