Another Country Heard From

This is a fascinating area with three major rille families that just barely interconnect, plus the rille/fault that cuts the mare lavas in Boscovich (just on the right edge). But what I love most is that it is an image submitted out of the blue by someone new to LPOD. 1700 people typically view LPOD each day but only a hundred or so submit images in a year's time, so it is great to welcome some of the other 1600. In this case the submission was in Spanish, the first time LPOD received a submission in another language. Fortunately, from my residence in Nicaragua I can understand Juan Maria and I say back muchas gracias for his excellent image.
