    The original database describes this as: Description: Earth Observation taken by the Apollo 9 crew. View is of clouds over College Station in Texas. Latitude was 30.30 N by Longitude 96.30 W, Overlap was 50%, Altitude miles were 126 and cloud cover was 80%. This imagery taken as part of the NASA S0-65 Experiment ``Multispectral Terrain Photography``. The experiment provides simultaneous satellite photography of the Earth's surface in three distinct spectral bands. The photography consists of four almost spatially identical photographs. The images of ground objects appear in the same coordinate positions on all four photos in the multispectral set within the opto-mechanical tolerances of the Hasselblad cameras in the Apollo 9 spacecraft. Band designation for this frame is B. Film and filter is thin base B/W 3400 Film,Panchromatic Wratten 58B. Mean Wavelength of Sensitivity is 525nm Green. The Nominal Bandpass is 460-610nm. Subject Terms: Apollo 9 Flight, Earth Observations (From Space) Categories: Experiment (Non-medical) Original: Film - 70MM B&W Interior_Exterior: Exterior Ground_Orbit: On-orbit. less
