Lot Essay

224:21:06 Scott: Well, we’re almost speechless looking at the thing. It’s amazing. Looks like we’re going straight up; and we’re leaving, there’s no doubt about that. And we’re right on the terminator. It shows very distinctly all the topography - all the topographic highs and lows. And we can see some major rilles. And we noticed one large lava filling within a depression, with domes very prominent within the lava fill. Oh, it’s just really spectacular. We have one crater almost below us that has a flat floor with radial rilles and circumferential rilles extending from the central peaks. I think we saw that as we flew over.
