LAMO image 37 has been released to the JPL Photojournal.

LAMO 37 features the southwestern portion of Sintana crater in the southern hemisphere. The imaged region appears mostly saturated with impacts, suggesting much of the terrain is very ancient. In contrast, the small crater on the rim of Sintana, appears quite recent and reflects a very strong blue signature on the color map. Ejected material from this small crater has been blown into the interior basin of Sintana crater. A nearby landslide event also appears next to the crater, possibly a result of the nearby impact shaking the soil. As noted in the Photojournal entry, the imaged region is centered at approximately 51 degrees south latitude, 46.1 degrees east longitude.
