Alpine Valley (June 8, 2003)
Right through the Alpine Mountains of the Moon goes the 130 km wide and 11 km long Alpine Valley. Its walls consist of enormous, steep cliffs. In the valley itself, you can find another 700 m wide, rectangle shaped rim.
The valley formed within the Imbrian period of the Moon, which means it has a geological age of between 3.85 and 3.2 billion years. South of the Alps, you can see the Cassini crater. Looking even further south, there are Aristillus, Autolycus and Archimedes visible. They are all still half side in the shadow of the uprising sun of the Moon's morning.
