This panorama was captured by Harrison Schmitt from a position north east of the LM, the first pan taken on EVA-1 of the Apollo 17 mission.

The crew had just extracted and activated the Lunar Rover and Gene Cernan can be seen giving it a test drive. This was successful to the relief of the crew, as it was planned that Apollo 17 would be making longer traverses than any of the previous Apollo missions. Over the course of three EVAs, the crew travelled almost 36km in the LRV.. hompage
