[NASA description] The Apollo 16 Command and Service Modules (CSM), as seen from the Lunar Module (LM, out of view) above terrain on the lunar farside. The two spacecraft had just undocked. The LM and CSM were out of communication at the time of this photograph's exposure, but shortly acquired the signal as they moved separately to Earth's side of the Moon. While astronauts John W. Young, commander; and Charles M. Duke Jr., lunar module pilot, descended in the Apollo 16 LM "Orion" to explore the Descartes highlands landing site on the Moon, astronaut Thomas K. Mattingly II, command module pilot, remained with the CSM "Casper" in lunar orbit.
