Apollo 10 Furnishes Vivid Lunar Details

Houston—Vivid verbal descriptions of the moon’s surface by the Apollo 10 astronauts agree well with those of the Apollo 8 crew in most instances except for colors. The Apollo 10 crew appears to have seen many more shades of brown than were seen by Apollo 8 although the latter, in post-flight photographic debriefings, indicated that their black and white photos should have a brown tinge, to be most accurate.
