  • An interesting oblique southward looking view of Rimae Boscovich is Apollo 17's Fairchild camera frame AS17-M-1668, because that photograph shows the eastern inner shadowed slope of the main rille very well! (in this frame, Boscovich's location is not far from the centre of the curved horizon).

Rimae Boscovich

Additional Information

The appearance of Boscovich with the curious system of rilles on its flat floor looks kind of "cracked"; it's as if a dark frozen lake was hit by something of a violent nature.
There seems to be some sort of difference in height at the southern part of the large north-south running rille. In this southern section, the western part of Boscovich's floor looks a little lower than the eastern part. How would it look like on the surface, as seen by astronaut's eyes, or by a pair of 3D-Stereo camera eyes on an unmanned rover...
