A second NAC cross-section of Rupes Recta

A year after beginning every-three-month releases of LRO Narrow and Wide Angle Camera observations the latest round December 14 revealed only the second NAC cross-section of the Near Side familiar fault feature Rupes Recta, or "the Straight Wall" seen here very close up from LROC NAC M135236853R, captured during LRO orbit 5063, July 31, 2010. The area has been well-covered by Wide Angle Camera surveys, and there's a lot of material devoted to the subject referenced below [NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University].

A spectacular image from Japan's SELENE-1 ("Kaguya") of Rupes Recta released in 2008, among other new images and data discussed in the post "Rima Birt and Rupes Recta," July 8, 2010 [JAXA/SELENE].
