Another look at the effusive dome west of Rima Yangel

Effusive dome on the southern rim of a  ghost crater situated on the northern shore of Mare Vaporum, in a 11.48 km-wide field of view west of Rima Yangel. LROC NAC mosaic M1111791664LR, LRO orbit 16100, January 2, 2013; 71.03° angle of incidence, 1.19 meters per pixel resolution from 118.91 km [NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University].
Follow-up LROC Narrow Angle Camera (NAC) observation swept up by the orbiter in January and released to the Planetary Data System (PDS) in June. This effusive dome on the north bank of Mare Vaporum was the subject of two extensive posts in February and March.

The mosaic above can be viewed at full and at a variety of medium resolutions, HERE. The dome has bow been imaged from LRO from high and low altitudes, under a range of illumination angles, and many of those observations are referenced in the posts from earlier in the year, linked above.
