Baillaud to Arnold Home

This is a very rugged area in the far north-east.  Most of the larger craters in this area predate the formation of the Imbrium basin, about 3,850 million years ago, and have been filled with, what may be fluidised, ejecta from that massive impact.

A wider-angle picture of this area with quite different lighting and orientation can be found here.

Move your mouse over the picture to see the names of the various features.
