Astronomy through the telescope. Craters south of Rupes Altai.

Rupes Altai is actually a portion of a ring surrounding the Mare Nectaris basin. This large ring disruptions continue its route, if we imagine a continuous line around the basin. Incidentally, the Rupes Altai, is a portion of the ring without being interrupted, within a radius of 427 km. These multiple rings were formed due to the major impact that formed the basin.

In these images, Rupes Altai chain, is in the sunlight shining from a high angle, so the area is in light, which is reflected by the sun.

Craters visible in these images: Rothmann G, C, Pons (41 km), Zagut (84 km), A (11 km), E (35 km), Polybius (41 km), Wilkins (57 km) and Celsius (36 km).
