Five successful Surveyor spacecraft landed on the Moon between June 1966 and January 1968 and returned over 87,000 pictures from the lunar surface. Surveyors I, III, V, and VI landed on mare surfaces; Surveyor VII landed in the southern highlands on the flank of the crater Tycho, the youngest, large bright-ray crater on the Moon.
