Nearly all lunar volcanic eruptions produced mare basalts that fill nearside basins and the floor of the farside South Pole-Aitken Basin. Very little evidence for volcanism exists in the lunar highlands. Now Brad Jolliff and colleagues have published new information from LRO documenting a likely volcanic landform at the famous Compton-Belkovich L101?
