Catalogue Note

Boldly INSCRIBED and SIGNED: "We were 'Right on the Landing Site,' EDGAR MITCHELL, Apollo 14 LMP." Commander Alan Shepard radioed the comment “Right on the landing site” just after touching down at Fra Mauro Base.

The chart features a shaded relief drawing having a large landing ellipse with the Fra Mauro landing point at the center. The flight path for the Lunar Module is plotted with 1,000 foot markers from the center point. A cross range line is plotted perpendicular from the approach path with 1,000 foot markers. Shepard and Mitchell used the craters marked Cone, Triplet, and Star during their descent to verify landing point accuracy.
