Scientist estimate the heights of features on the moon by measuring the lenghts of the shadows they cast on the moon's surface.

At the time the photograph was taken, the sun's angle of elevation from this place on the moon's surface was 23deg37minutes. How high does the rim rise above the inside of the crater?
