    The original database describes this as: Description: Earth Observation taken by the Apollo 9 crew. View is of Mexico, Baja California and the Colorado River Delta. Latitude was 31.28 N by Longitude 115.42 W, Overlap was 50%, Altitude miles were 126 and cloud cover was 10%. 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 D. Film and filter are B/W SO-246,Panchromatic Wratten 25A. Mean Wavelength of Sensitivity is 645nm Red. The Nominal Bandpass is 580-700nm. 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
