Northern Pease and Southern Pease?
During the mission of Apollo 16 in april 1972, CMP Ken Mattingly described the distinct colors of the nearside formation which is unofficially known as the Lassell Massif. In the description of his visual observations, he mentioned something which sounded like "Northern Pease and Southern Pease". This should have been (as I think of it) Northern Piece and Southern Piece (of the Lassell Massif). There is absolutely no connection with the farside crater of this page! (Pease).
See page Lassell for Ken Mattingly's descriptions of the colored Lassell Massif.
