Hadley Rille from March 2007

4x Imagemate image. Nearly the same sun angle when the crew from Apollo 15 landed.
Hadley mountain is top of image, half in shadow with rille below. They landed in the middle, between the rille and the mountain.
You can also make out St. George crater, just on the corner of the rille as it takes a right turn going South.

Apollo 15 image of the top part of the rille taken from lunar orbit.

Pan taken from red arrow indicator position above, showing the view looking down the rille with Hadley mountain to the right.
