Lunar Orbiter 5 medium resolution view of Rima Hadley (Hadley Rille) on the Moon.

The Moon
Lunar Orbiter 5 view of Hadley Rille and the surrounding region on the Moon. Hadley Rille is the sinuous depression running from the top to the bottom of the image. To the right are the 1 to 2 km high Apennine mountains. Apollo 15 landed near the very rightmost extension of the rille, near the top of the image. The large crater in the center of the image is the 30 km diameter Hadley C. A high resolution image of the rille is available as L05-H105. North is up. (Lunar Orbiter 5, frame M-105)
