LO-IV-195H The rilles across the middle of this view of the southern part of Mare Orientale are a small part of the larger zone known as Rimae Pettit. However, the ones in the extreme lower left corner are part of a separately-named system: Rimae Focas. The prominent crater is Shuleykin. The other craters are not named.

Additional Information

If... Franz von Paula Gruithuisen could have observed the curious crackled region immediately west of Rimae Pettit, how would he have thought about its appearance? (F.v.P.Gruithuisen told the world that he discovered some sort of Lunar City at the somewhat geometrically arranged region north of nearside crater Schroter).
