Caves on the Moon and Mars new

Reading the article on Moon caves in S&T April (Came yesterday), and was wondering if anyone has gotten close to seeing these areas?
Not new news but interesting otherwise to see.

The "caves" on the moon are not visible from Earth due to their small size, although the low Marius hills where one "skylight" has been found are visible even in a fairly small telescope. There are a number of very small rilles in the area, so lava tubes with a few "skylights" were probably expected. Clear skies to you.
