Summary

The United States Geological Survey Flagstaff Field Center was founded by the late Eugene Shoemaker in 1963 as a research site for the new science of planetary geology. Flagstaffs clear air and high elevation made it a desirable location for telescope observations of the Moon and planets and nearby Meteor Crater was a superb training ground for the Apollo astronauts. There, and in the volcanic fields surrounding Flagstaff, astronauts tested equipment and were taught to look at the Moon through the eyes of a geologist.
