My favorite remains the image taken by Charlie Duke showing John Young jumping up while saluting the flag... Just on his left we can see the first telescope used on the Moon.

So I went to see the Gene Cernan film today, and they showed a photograph on the big screen of Gene at the LRV (I think it was AS17-140-21390). I spotted something in it, so I looked for the image and flipped it to show it the right way round:

Stellarium suggests that the dot in the visor (also visible in AS17-140-21391) is Earth, as it was in the south west as viewed from the landing site, which puts it pretty much in the middle of the South Massif as viewed from the LM.

In other words, this photo shows everybody.

The low-res version of AS16-121-19453 is too dark to make out any details. The high-res version reveals an image of John Young. The photo was taken during the transearth coast.

KSC-373C-0556 is a 1973 aerial photo of the KSC Visitors Information Center.

In the background, you can see Skylab 1 on Pad A and Skylab 2 on Pad B.

Regarding photo AS17-140-21390, this must be the earth, for that I rely on the high gain antenna lunar rover, in fact this is always pointed in the direction of the earth for communication the reflection on the helmet give me reason apparently (sorry for my poor English).
