The report summarizes an experiment to detect a retroreflector array placed on the moon by the Apollo 11 astronauts by measuring the magnitude of the return of a reflected ruby-laser beam directed at the reflector array before the astronauts left the moon. The Mount Haleakala Observatory on Maui, Hawaii, was in a location such that the moon and the Sea of Tranquillity site on the moon were observable during the moonwalk. Author
