Yes - here's another link which confirms that the picture is of the big rock - and it gives it a name! (Made my day!!!) - Longyan. It's the only name I know so far.

The Nature Geoscience article mentioned in that link uses the name Loong Rock.

With double-O?? ohmy.gif ohmy.gif

This doesn't exist in Pīnyīn.
It reflects well the pronounciation
for english speaking and pronouncing people,
but it's not correct.

PS: I don't speak chinese,
but after the Cháng'é-3 landing,
I bought a book to learn a little bit. rolleyes.gif

It's very common to transliterate purely phonetically - reflecting the pronunciation is really all it has to do. I am accustomed to seeing it go in the other direction, seeing English names like Shakespeare converted into Cyrillic.
