A view of the Apollo 15 Command and Service Modules (CSM) in lunar orbit as photographed from the Lunar Module (LM) just after rendezvous.

The lunar nearside is in the background. This view is looking southeast into the Sea of Fertility. The crater Taruntius is at the right center edge of the picture. The Service Module's (SM) Scientific Instrument Module (SIM) bay, which holds eight orbital science experiments, is clearly visible.

While astronauts David R. Scott, commander, and James B. Irwin, lunar module pilot, descended in the LM to explore the Hadley- Apennine area of the moon, astronaut Alfred M. Worden, command module pilot, remained with the CSM in lunar orbit.
