Description

This is a colour image of the crater Gassendi and the broader Mare Humorum. I also made an IR capture (642nm BP) but the colour image was superior.
The rille system in the flooded floor of Gassendi is well resolved. The relatively smooth basaltic floor of Mare Humorum extends to the south (up) and is pock marked by a number of small regular craters. There are a number of escarpments and rille systems to the east (right) side of the Gassendi and Mare Humorum which are indicated in the annotated image.
The rayed crater Byrgius is just out of view at right, but Brygius A can just be seen and the bright ray system of the main crater is clearly visible.
