Rilles as far as the eye can see in Prinz!

LROC WAC mosaic of the rille-rich Prinz crater region. Bench-like features are visible in the Prinz B depression and two flows originating in Prinz B converge just west of the arrow [NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University].

The bouldery, higher-reflectance mound in the central portion of this image is an island near the source region, Prinz B, for a short sinuous rille. The two rilles join at the triangular tip of this kipuka-like structure and flow northwestward for ~10 km. Image width is 500 m [NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University].
