HYGINIS
Directory - Section 34


BRIEF DESCRIPTION
A region with a prominent radial structure, directed towards the basin of Mare Imbrium, containing the rilles Rima Hyginus and Rima Ariadaeus which are readily visible. An interesting plateau is situated about 10 km north of crater Godin C.  Refer to your Antonin Rukl lunar atlas chart, page 95.  Section 34 is also the home of the "Blair Cuspids", a mysterious formation that needs to be explored in a future NASA mission. Hopefully the LRO captured images of these features and we will be able to post them.
