LAMO image 15 has been released to the JPL Photojournal.

LAMO 15 features a short segment of the far northwestern portion of Kerwan crater. A large, approximately 2 kilometer diameter crater is draped in a large amount of the white material that has been linked to salt deposits. The pattern around the crater would suggest the bright material in this location may have been just below the much darker surface layer and was thrown about landscape after an object impacted the local area. The crater is also located directly on the rim of major crater, Kerwan. As noted in the Photojournal entry, the imaged region is centered at approximately 2.5 degrees south latitude, 112 degrees east longitude.
