Northern Dunes

Dunes cover the floor of this unnamed crater in the northern lowlands.

Note: This crater is almost due north of Lomonosov Crater, which lies about 5 degrees south. The surprise is that this unnamed crater doesn't have a name yet, as it's both a medium-sized crater and fairly prominent for the region (i.e., there is no other major crater in its vicinity other than Lomonosov).
