LAMO image 43 has been released to the JPL Photojournal.

LAMO 43 features an unnamed region south of the degraded mountain, Liberalia Mons and northwest of prominent mountain, Ahuna Mons. The large impact crater in the center is approximately 15.6-kilometers across and appears to be the result of a quite recent impact, having a well established rim, smooth crater walls and a smooth ejecta blanket surrounding the crater. The crater also reflects strongly in the blue spectrum with a slight shift into green, suggesting a diversity in soil composition and the possible presence of volatile compounds.

The imaged region is centered at approximately 0.6 degrees north latitude, 311.3 degrees east longitude.
