Astronaut's view of Maury and points south

Unusually low LROC NAC oblique of Maury crater and points immediately south
Swooping low over the Maury crater group, dominated by Maury crater (17km, 40.355°N, 41.768°E) in the northern foreground. Distances are deceiving over airless bodies, however.  The crater superimposed on the fault structure running east (left) to west through the south (top) of the full-size 8813 x 8187 pixel field of view is 90 km away from Maury. LROC Narrow Angle Camera (NAC) mosaic M144361170LR, orbit 6408, November 14, 2010; solar illumination incidence angle in the area was 56.21° as the spacecraft  and camera were slewed 76° from nadir, 192 km north of Maury's center (Resolution varies from 1.6 to 9 meters per pixel, from 39.8 km over 43.46°N, 39.82°E) [NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University].
Maury crater - Chang'e-2
Context, medium resolution, low-angle illumination view of Maury and points south visible in the LROC NAC oblique mosaic. The 100 km-long dotted line running south from the top of the image correlates with the overlapping junction between the left and right frames seen up the middle of LROC NAC oblique mosaic M144361170LR. Chang'e-2 image and Clementine natural color matched up in Virtual Moon Atlas 6 [CNSA/CLEP].
