LAMO image 8 has been released to the JPL Photojournal.

LAMO 8 features an unnamed region, south of Dantu crater. White material, currently thought to be related to high albedo salts, is present in the upper left portion of the image. Several linear features also seem to run diagonally from the left to the right, heavily worn with time, and possibly in relation to the formation of Dantu crater. The terrain also seems to buckle near the lower right corner, forming a series of shallow hills. As noted on the Photojournal entry, the image is centered at approximately 13.7 degrees north latitude, 144 degrees east longitude.
