Compiled from mission reports and summary science reports. Actual landing site coordinates based on International Astronomical Union (IAU) Mean Earth Polar Axis coordinate system as described in the Journal of  Geophysical Research, vol. 105, pages 20,227 to 20,280, 2000.

Although not planned as a lunar landing mission, Apollo 10 flew over the area to be targeted by the first lunar landing mission.

Data is for intended landing site; mission aborted.
