The Apollo 14 mission lasted from 31 January to 9 February 1971. The crew members were Alan Shepard, Stuart Roosa and Edgar Mitchell. The Fra Mauro area of our Moon was the landing site.

We celebrate the forty-fifth anniversary of Apollo 14 early next year!

Yesterday, on the anniversary of his historic lunar landing, Edgar Mitchell passed away. I'll include a few slides on the 36-Day Display at the Highland Road Park Observatory. Godspeed, Edgar Mitchell.
