Lunar craters

AS08-13-2344 (21-27 Dec. 1968) --- This oblique photograph looks generally northwest from the Apollo 8 spacecraft into the Sea of Tranquility. (HOLD PICTURE WITH LARGE TRIANGLE FORMED BY DARK SKY AT UPPER LEFT). The three prominent craters are Taruntius F in the lower right corner; Taruntius E in the center; and Cauchy between the two linear features. The Cauchy scarp, this side of the Cauchy crater, is formed by one to three faults stepped down toward the spacecraft. Cauchy Rille, on the other side of Cauchy crater, consists of several arcuate segments of a graben. Each of the three prominent craters is 10 to 15 kilometers (6 to 9 statute miles) across.
