Such low light also gave an odd look to Torricelli, with a similar "winged" look, made even weirder by the odd craterlet attached to its eastern edge. It was like some odd creature had been squashed onto the moon.
Both share the characteristics of not being on the edge of a Maria, nor really in a mare zone... which makes them apostate. The classic rille structure is formed around the edge of a mare, or the edges and center of a large crater (probably a slumping effect). But here and there are some that cut right through the highlands. Perhaps the most spectacular example is Rima Sirsalis, but these groupings near Mare Nectaris and Tranquilitatis are in their own way equally as fascinating, in that they both have tripartite parallel runs.
