Peary_Crater

Peary Crater with the North Pole of the Moon in the distance.   At the left the sharp-edged crater is Hermite A, a virtual twin of Shackleton Crater at the South Pole.  The color is lighter with height.  Most of the deeper craters in this view are candidates for ice mining.  From LDEM_85N, produced by the LOLA science team, imaged in Mathematica and visualized in Meshlab.
