The Apennine Mountains and Hadley Rille……
According to David Scott, Commander,
“We’re sure in a fine place here. We can see St. George; it looks like it’s right over a little rise. I’m sure it’s much farther than that. We can see Bennett Hill. We see somthing off at our — like — 1 o’clock that’s pretty good elevation — we’re not too sure of that — but we’ll give you some more detail later on.” …
The landing site chosen for Apollo 15 was on the eastern margin of the Imbrium Basin in the region known as Palus Putredinis. There were two main objectives for this landing site. First, the rim of the Imbrium Basin could be sampled along the Appenine Mountains. It was expected that this would provide material from deeper in the lunar crust than was sampled in the Fra Mauro Formation by Apollo 14. Second, this site provided an opportunity to explore Hadley Rille, a photogenic channel in the mare surface that was probably formed by volcanic processes….( Information courtesey Nasa ).
The Rille can be seen clearly in this image taken on the 13th February 2019.
