LAMO image 36 has been released to the JPL Photojournal.

LAMO 36 prominently features Sekhet crater in far southern hemisphere, near the south Cerian pole. A high amount of mass-wasting has occurred within Sekhet crater, completely obscuring the crater floor. Numerous minor impacts dot the terrain and a second large impact is present in the upper left of the region. Surrounding this smaller crater is much smoother terrain which is likely a result of the impact and the ejected material from the location of crater. Very large boulders can also be spotted surrounding the crater, some as large as 300 meters across. When looking at the color map, this smaller crater only has a very minor signiture, barely coloring the surrounding area with a slight green tint. This is most due to the low resolution of the available color map at this time. As noted in the Photojournal entry, the imaged region is centered at approximately 67.3 degrees south latitude, 251.5 degrees east longitude.
