A portion of the shadowed, southern wall of Rimae Bürg is visible in this subset of LROC NAC image M129127265R. The rille floor (upper left of image) is flat, attesting to the horst-graben normal faulting that is invoked for the formation of many linear rilles. Image width is 500m, illumination from the right [NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University].
