I created two paintings dedicated to the Apollo 13 mission. One has the Moon as a backdrop and the other one the Earth. Both paintings show the damaged Service Module as it was jettisioned before re-entry into Earth's atmosphere. The paintings were kindly signed by Fred Haise, Lunar Module Pilot Apollo 13.
You have the possibility to purchase prints of my signed originals.
Posidonius Crater, Once upon a Moon, Mare Crisium and Clavius crater - canvas print (from left to right)
Posidonius is a lunar impact crater, named after ancient Greek philosopher and geographer Posidonius of Apamea. The crater is located on the north-eastern edge of Mare Serenitatis. The crater Chacornac is attached to the southeast rim.
The interior has been overlain by lava flow in the past which caused the noticeable rille system across the floor.
ONCE UPON A MOON
This is a composite painting. The image of the Moon suface was taken by the Apollo 17 crew and shows the Eratosthenes crater on the left and Copernicus crater on the right. I have added a Command Service Module which orbited the Moon, whilst the Commander and Lunar module pilot of the mission would land on the surface.
Eratosthenes crater was named after ancient Greek astronomer Eratosthenes of Cyrene, who estimated the circumference of the Earth, and the distance from the Earth to the Sun.
Mare Crisium is the latin name for Sea of Crises. This lunar mare is located northeast of Mare Tranquilitatis (Sea of Tranquility) which was the landing site for the Apollo 11 mission when Neil Armstrong famously told the flight controller “Houston, Tranquility Base here, the Eagle has landed”.
This is one of the largest lunar crater formations on the Moon. The diameter is 231 km and its size makes it visible to the unaided eye. It is located south of the prominent crater Tycho. It is named after the Jesuit priest Christopher Clavius. The most notable feature is the curving chain of craters across the floor.
