This closeup of Hadley Rille was taken by the Apollo 15 panoramic camera. This part of the rille appears along the left side (south) of  Figure 204  under different lighting conditions. Rocky outcrops along the top of the rille walls appear to be cut by fractures, called joints. The blocks that have rolled to the bottom of the rille are huge, up to tens of meters across.   -K.A.H.
