(NASA photograph AS15-9377[P].)This oblique photograph looks west across the landing site.First, the rim of the Imbrium Basin could be sampled along the Appenine Mountains.It was expected that this would provide material from deeper in the lunar crust than was sampled in the Fra Mauro Formation by Second, this site provided an opportunity to explore Hadley Rille, a photogenic channel in the mare surface that was probably formed by volcanic processes.The landing site chosen for was on the eastern margin of the Imbrium Basin in the region known as Palus Putredinis.There were two main objectives for this landing site.EST, November 19, 1969 Landing Site Coordinates 3.01239° S latitude, 23.42157° W longitude Apollo 14 — Fra Mauro Lunar Landing Time a.m.
