High resolution (panoramic) and high geometric fidelity (metric) photos were taken from orbit of the lunar landing sites. Gamma ray and X-ray fluorescence spectroscopic measurement were taken to determine regional chemical composition of the Moon. Distinctive features of the Apennine Bench Formation are described. The structurally controlled topography of the Apennine Bench Formation is suggested of a lava channel or collapsed lava tube.
