Lunar Reconaissance Orbiter first images

The first test images are back from the LRO.

I've annotated a previous image of the moon with the location of the image: The orange markers are at the crater Hell E, which is listed in the press release as being just a few kilometers west of the image site. Hell E is listed as 10km across, so the images are just a touch to the right of that crater. Click on the image for a large original.

Credit for the LRO images are NASA/GSFC/ASU.
