This particular image - AS16-117-18853 - was shot during the Apollo 16 lunar surface ops, showing Charlie Duke near the LRV. The raw frame suffers from some significant motion-blurring, but there still appears to be something bizarre in the bottom right corner of this frame. What is that shape on the lunar surface we see there?

[Charlie hasn't yet put the Mag 117 into the ETB and is probably reporting what the frame count will be after he takes two pictures of John, who is still working at the LMP seat. Charlie goes out of the field-of-view to the right to get the two pictures of John]

170:17:37 Duke: Hey, John.

170:17:38 Young: Yeah.

170:17:40 Duke: Take a look.

[John turns to face Charlie, who takes AS16-117- 18852 and 18853. These are the last useful frames on the magazine. Note the bright, rectangular pattern on the high-gain antenna. The pattern is sunlight reflected by the mirrored tiles on the top of the TV camera]

170:17:43 England: Okay, Charlie; you should have...(Pause) Charlie; you should have...

170:17:56 Duke: What did you say, Tony?

170:17:57 England: ...seven Hasselblads and three DAC magazines...Actually be six in there right now; one's still on John's camera.

170:18:09 Duke: Okay. Stand by. (Long Pause)
