A phenomenal collection of images from space

Photos from space are almost always fascinating and images from the Apollo moon missions are pretty much the pinnacle of cool. Now, archivist Kipp Teague has put up a huge number of Apollo moon images up on The Project Apollo Archive Flickr page.

There are a lot of what would typically be considered throw-away frames that are blurry, dark, or otherwise imperfect, but I get a kick out of looking through things like this. It’s like the appeal of looking through old film contact sheets.

I would describe some of my favorites, but honestly, it's insanely fun to just click through the archive.
