Astronauts Alan Bean and Charles Conrad on Lunar Surface, November 20, 1969. Saturn Apollo Program. NASA, #6903870. Hudson River Museum N/A Yonkers, New York A Century of Lunar Photography and Beyond 3000-12-31 The oldest surviving photographs of the moon were taken from an observatory in Westchester in the 1840s. Just over one hundred years later, in 1969, astronauts such as Neil A. Armstrong took photographs on the moon’s surface during the Apollo 11 mission. Between those two time periods, photographers—living and robotic—used all manner of photographic technology to capture the face of our nearest celestial neighbor, including Rube-Goldberg-esque devices combining photography, analog television, and the mechanical workings of vending machines. A Century of Lunar Photography and Beyond, on view in the Oliver J. Troster Gallery surrounding the HRM Planetarium, brings together a selection of lunar photographs from NASA, the Hastings Historical Society, the Lick Observatory Archive, and private collections.  Items range from nineteenth-century astronomers John and Henry Draper’s earliest experiments—some never before seen in museums—to massive NASA mapping surveys, to high-definition digital photography from lunar orbit.
