The Moon - Lunar Orbiter 5

High resolution view of Rima Hadley (Hadley Rille) on the Moon

The Moon
Lunar Orbiter 5 view of Hadley Rille (Rima Hadley) on the Moon. This high-resolution view of the V-shaped valley clearly shows blocks along the walls and at the bottom. The sides slope at about 20 degrees, and the rille is 1 to 1.5 km from rim to rim. Apollo 15 landed about 2 km from the rim of Hadley Rille and explored it in detail. North is up. This is a detail from the lower left corner of frame H3. The medium resolution, regional view is shown in frame lo5_m105. (Lunar Orbiter 5, frame 105-H3)
