Novarvpta volcanic dome in Alaska, Earth (base -2 km, height -840m)

Novarvpta volcanic dome in Alaska, Earth (base -2 km, height -840m)

Mons Gruithuisen Gamma 40.50 W 36.60 N

A dome mountain in the south of Mairan, base 20 km, height about 1 km. Its summit has a very shallow pit and a craterlet around 1 km in diameter. They are good tests for the resolution of 10-inch telescopes. Compare this lunar dome with Novarupta dome on Earth. On 2005.11.07, NASA captured a flash west of Mons Gruithuisen Gamma (T153).

Mons Gruithuisen Delta 39.50 W 36.00 N

A mountain similar to Mons Gruithuisen Gamma in nature but irregular in shape, base 20 km. Mons Rumker 58.10 W 40.80 N

A volcanic complex of dome mountains on Oceanus Procellarum, base 70 km, height 500 m. Its top contains a shallow depression sculptured by clefts and craterlets. At low Sun angles, wrinkle ridges are seen in the vicinity.

Right: 2006.05.09 13:31 UT Age 12 days. 10-in f/6 Newtonian +5X+ToUcam. Louise is a rayed craterlel, dia. 1 km. Mons Deiisie looks like a baby crawling to Diophantus

Delisle 34.60 W 29.90 N Diophantus 34.30 W 27.60 N (Image T211) A pair of craters, diameter 25 and 17 km respectively. Delisle has uneven floor with a central broken craterlet. Mons Delisle is an interesting isolated mountain which runs 30 km south-north. It has a bulgy southern head but narrows down to a "fish-tail" at the other end. Louise is a tiny rayed crater, 0.8 km in diameter. Two faint narrow rilles Rima Diophantus (length 150 km) and Rima Delisle (60 km) are in the close vicinity. Both rilles are difficult to spot. Walter (1 km) is an obscure craterlet near Diophantus; it is named by IAU but this gives confusion mentioned in Map 11|. The arrow in the picture points to a skeptical dome.
