LROC NAC Anaglyph: Stromgren X
Stromgren X - a highly degraded crater on the lunar farside replete with hummocky terrain [NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University].
LROC NAC Anaglyph: Highlands Ridge
A ridge that formed in ejecta deposits from the Orientale basin [NASA/GSFC/Arizona State Univeristy].
LROC NAC Anaglyph: Tycho East Melt Puddles
Puddles and rubble - check out these melt puddles northeast of Tycho Crater [NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University].
LROC NAC Anaglyph: Hell Q Crater
Hell Q crater - an excellent example of a simple bowl-shaped crater in the southwest region of the lunar near-side [NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University].
LROC NAC Anaglyph: Perched Crater
Craters on top of craters! Shown here is a crater that is perched on the southwest rim of Darwin C, a highly degraded crater in the southeastern lunar nearside [NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University].
LROC NAC Anaglyph: Mare Ingenii Swirls
Mare Ingenii Swirls - note the lack of topography associated with these enigmatic deposits! [NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University].

Unnamed crater showing unique albedo variation in LROC NAC M123812230R. Image width is 1.8 km; incidence angle is 8° [NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University].
Low-incidence angle image (~9°, near noon) of a curious mound on the floor of Firsov crater. Image width is 2.2 km [LROC NAC M187506567RNASA/GSFC/Arizona State University].
Exploring the Lunar Subsurface
What a great place to explore! Two collapsed segments of a lava tube run from the southwest to the northeast. These collapsed segments may provide access to the subsurface, which has never been directly sampled. The average width of the collapsed segments is ~650 meters. The lava tube is ~50 meters deep in this LROC NAC mosaic (M1165080128LR). Image width is approximately 7 km [NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University].
