Hitchhiker's Guide to Rukl Chart 6

Belkovich and Hayn (David North <d _at_ timocharis.com>)
Belkovich and Hayn, when just on the terminator and librated to "profile" view, create an amazing illusion! It looks as if there is one mountain range overlapping another, with a wealth of light and shadow play. The effect is so striking I literally lost sleep over it... one section looked like Mt. Fuji next to a deep lake, with foothills and valleys all around and even a hint of mists due to "fuzzy" seeing.
Rima Gartner (David North <d _at_ timocharis.com>)
Unlike Rima Sheepshanks, Rima Gartner (in the semighost crater of the same name) was very easy. I don't recall noting this before, but it showed very easily in this light as a sinuous curving rille that gets fatter toward the north of the crater. This is one of those objects that gets more interesting with longer contemplation.
