LO-IV-126H Rima Draper was very faintly recorded at the positions of the white arrows in this Lunar Orbiter view (click on the image to see a larger version).
Note: in this image, the rough terrain at lower left was once known as Promontorium Banat (thus named by J.N.Krieger). The small hillock at upper right (Pytheas Beta) was once known as Mount Dyson (thus named by H.P.Wilkins).- DannyCaes Feb 3, 2014
