I've spent a few days with guys from the University of Arizona.  One session was with the lunar missions' photo archive, and the guy showing us had spent quite a while working out where the ball could have landed and eventually located it!!😎

That I can imagine is a fair amount of effort, I struggle in a bit of long grass sometimes, let alone in reduced gravity, dusty white, cratered, inhospitable environment like the moon..  I wonder, did he ever tell you har far it travelled?

Yes, he's a proper Apollo lunatic 😊  I'll ask about distance....
