LO-V-188M Vera is just north of Prinz (whose rim is partially visible at the bottom), and lies at one end of one of the several sinuous rilles comprising Rimae Prinz. About 20-km to the NNE is another named pit, Ivan. A little stream-like winding channel (about 400 m wide) meandering down the floor of the main rima seems to originate at Vera. A very similar structure (also with a little meandering stream) can be seen in the Cobra Head area of Schröter’s Valley.
