Right: AS15-M-0409 Dorsum Owen is the slightly elevated area running north from the oddly shaped crater Aratus CA (at bottom). On photos taken with an extremely low sun angle, it can seen running nearly to the top margin of this frame. The similar, but much more prominent ridge along the right margin is what was originally labeled Dorsum Von Cotta on the DMA maps.
