Apollo 15 landing spot

I found this part of the Moon always interesting, usually shows best around 7/8th day. The landing spot can also be confirmed here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYZ3nvLt0N4 the large gullys can easily be seen.

Thanks for the picture and link Luke. The actual landing spot is just down from the sunlit spot below your arrow, just above the triangular shadow of Mons Hadley.
It is a great view in an 18” scope at 729x.
