My previous series illustrated landing on the moon and return to orbit of the Russian 1960s secret manned lunar program. This new series depicts the arrival of the spacecraft at the moon .
The Blok D booster stage slows the spacecraft stack, consisting of the LOK/Blok D adapter, the Soyuz 7K-LOK lunar orbiter (almost completely hidden in this perspective), and the LK lander, hidden within the adapter, into lunar orbit. This alternate depiction from a different viewpoint is perhaps more accurate than my previous one, showing the moon's far side mostly in darkness.
The Soyuz 7K-LOK and the Blok D/Adapter are or will soon be from Renderosity Free Stuff. The booster flame is one of Jepe's FlameZ from DAZ. The moon is from DIY Universe, with a NASA surface map. The star background is from DAZ's Easy Environments: Earth.
