A thrust fault along the wall of Slipher crater, near the Moon’s north pole. The cliff is about 20 meters high/65 feet high, which is nearly as tall as a five-story building. This view of Slipher crater was made by compiling images from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera into high-resolution topographic maps
, called digital elevation models (DEMs). Software can be used to view the DEM from any perspective.
