The Moon
Northward oblique view of the Marius Hills and Oceanus Procellarun on the Moon taken by Lunar Orbiter 2. The hills are named after the 41 km diameter crater Marius, at the upper right at 11.8N, 50.8 W, and are thought to be volcanic domes, plugs, and cones. Note the wrinkle ridges which also stretch across the image. (Lunar Orbiter 2, frame M-213)
