CSM external lights
« on: August 30, 2017, 02:42:12 AM »
I know the CSM had an external light on the J-missions which was used when the CMP was retrieving film magazines from the SIM bay. Was the light also used during docking/undocking etc, and therefore installed on ALL missions?

A summary of all the Apollo lighting can be found here: https://www.hq.nasa.gov/alsj/20090016336.pdf

I really like that image of Gene Cernan in the LM after an EVA with all the moon dust covering his uit.
Truth needs no defense.  Nobody can take those footsteps I made on the surface of the moon away from me.
