Another for the staff!


Recommended Posts

This photo shows one of the most known formations of the Moon, in it we can see a Rupes and a Rhyme. There is another Rhyme barely visible and difficult to capture that originates apparently from the upper wall of Rupes and is marked on the square.
The question is:
Besides the name of the two main formations here highlighted what is the fundamental difference between a Rhyme and a Rupes?

A rupes is a cliff, a rima is a crack.  Here I think we have Rupes Recta and Rima Birt

(I made my answer red-on-red. Select it if you want to see I'm right.)

Well done, Avani!
