According to Eric M. Jones's ALSJ (Apollo Lunar Surface Journal), Apollo 17's B-and-W Hasselblad frames AS17-135-20607 and 20609 might show crater Horatio near the right margins of both frames. These frames were made from the LRV, en-route from the SEP site to Station 2.

  • Horatio (crater) - "Horatio Hornblower and his compatriots in the historical fiction of C. S. Forester provide the humanly personal insight into how ordinary, but then how extraordinary, heroes turn out to be. From the wooden ships and pathways of the sea of which Forester wrote, came many of the space-faring traditions that guide our course toward the stars." Horatio is just west of Camelot and the crew drove past it on EVA-2 (source: APOLLO LUNAR SURFACE JOURNAL, Eric M. Jones).
