- It looks like there are no orbital Apollo photographs of Sabine B (Aldrin). Or perhaps... (??). I would like to ask other connoisseurs of orbital Apollo photography if they know the ID-numbers of frames (Hasselblad - Fairchild - Itek) which show this crater.- DannyCaes DannyCaes May 14, 2011
  • Aldrin was captured on Apollo 11's Hasselblads AS11-41-6119, 6120, 6121. In the third frame (6121) it (craterlet Aldrin) is visible near the frame's right margin.
- Thanks Patricio Leon! - DannyCaes DannyCaes May 15, 2011
  • Aldrin was also captured on color-Hasselblad frame AS11-37-5447 (near the frame's upper right corner). Note the presence of Apollo 11's CSM Columbia in this frame!
- Thanks John Moore! - DannyCaes DannyCaes May 15, 2011
