Last to the Moon

A spectacular shot of the night launch of Apollo 17, which carried the last (to date!) humans to the Moon. I remember staying up to watch it. The launch was delayed, so I stayed up later until it lit the sky up. The first mission to carry a scientist, the longest stay on the Moon, some of the most spectacular vistas (but Apollo 15 and 16 both landed in amazing areas).

I even made an audio recording of the launch. But, like many a sad tale of a baseball card collection, it was tossed while I was away at college.
