LAMO image 29 has been released to the JPL Photojournal.

LAMO 29 features an unnamed region, southeast of Dantu crater. Ejected material from the far right crater, appears to be draped over much of the imaged region, giving an overall, smooth appearance to the terrain. The top-center crater appears to be much older than the adjacent crater, due to the presence of a high number of regionally large interior basin impacts, and the degree of mass-wasting around the rim. The top-right crater currently has a much better defined rim, and only features the common regionally small impacts within the interior basin. Looking at the color map, the top-right crater also presents a very strong signal in the blue spectrum range, further suggesting the crater is of recent origin and may also have volatile compounds present at the surface today.
