The Glare of the Sun

This view of Antares, the Apollo 14 Lunar Module as it sat on the moon's Fra Mauro Highlands, reflects a circular flare caused by the brilliant sun. The unusual ball of light was said by the astronauts to have a jewel-like appearance. At extreme left, the lower slope of Cone Crater can be seen. Image Credit: NASA
