Don't Give Me Any of Your Lip
image by Howard Eskildsen, Ocala, Florida
I think this is the lowest Sun view of the Neander Fault that I have seen. And it is also one of the LRO's shows it to be part fault, part rille. Where it crosses a small hill - well seen in Howard's image just where the feature changes direction, it is definitely a rille about 2 km wide and less than 50 m deep. In other places, as this evening illumination shows, the eastern (right) lip of the feature is considerably higher than the left, giving it the look of a fault.
