Date Taken: 04/22/72

Astronaut John W. Young, Apollo 16 commander, stands in the shadow of the  Lunar Module (LM) behind the ultraviolet camera which is in operation. This   photograph was taken by Astronaut Charles M. Duke Jr., lunar module pilot,   during the mission's second extravehicular activity (EVA-2). The UV camera's  gold surface is designed to maintain the correct temperature.  Young set the  prescribed angles of azimuth and elevation (here 14 degrees for photography  of the large Magellanic Cloud) and pointed the camera. The U.S. flag and  Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) are in the left background.
