Shackleton Landings   Leave a comment

The floor of Shackleton Crater is in permanent darkness.  I hung a light down near the bottom and settled in for a landing.  Two passes, one “North” and one “East”  directions being tricky at the South Pole.  The dark gray field is less than the minimum of permanent darkness.  20 meter per pixel data courtesy of the NASA LRO/LOLA science team.
