Bradley RilleHome

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

In this picture of the Apennine Mountains, Bradley Rille is clearly visible.  Authorities differ markedly on the length of this rille.  The Virtual Moon Atlas (VMA) gives it as 134 Km but I have seen 240 Km or even 311 Km.  I suppose it depends where you think it starts and finishes.   I used the distance facility in the VMA to make my own estimate and get a figure of 155 Km.
The picture was taken with a ToUcam attached to my LX200 with a X2 adaptor lens on 6th September 2004 when the Moon was 21.8 days old.
