Latitude was 28.39 N by Longitude 95.38 W, Overlap was 70%, Altitude miles were 102 and cloud cover was 25%. This imagery taken as part of the NASA S0-65 Experiment ``Multispectral Terrain Photography``. The experiment provides simultaneous satellite photography of the Earth's surface in three distinct spectral bands. The photography consists of four almost spatially identical photographs. The images of ground objects appear in the same coordinate positions on all four photos in the multispectral set within the opto-mechanical tolerances of the Hasselblad cameras in the Apollo 9 spacecraft. Band designation for this frame is B. Film and filter is thin base B/W 3400 Film,Panchromatic Wratten 58B. Mean Wavelength of Sensitivity is 525nm Green. The Nominal Bandpass is 460-610nm.
