Howdy all,

now that the all-new hi-resolution bumpmap for the Moon is available, visiting the Apollo Landing sites is quite interesting, as one can recognize the terrain features of the real Apollo Landing site's horizon-view pretty clearly.
Below, you can find the data you may add to your "places.cfg" file in your "SpaceEngine\config" folder. Up to now, I included only the ones from Apollo 15, 16 and 17 as they have significant terrain features around them.
When selecting the locations you will be shown the site at the exact time of the lunar landing at the precise location of the Lunar Module Landing site of the respective Apollo mission. Your position will be synched with Moon's rotation, so when unpausing time, you may select "current time" from the menu to warp to the present moment.
