Northwestern Limb

The region leading towards the Moon's northwestern limb is marked by numerous large craters, including Babbage, Pythagoras, J. Herschel, South, Anaximander, Carpenter, Anaximenes, Poncelet and Philolaus, each with a diameter greater than 60 kilometers. The western segment of Mare Frigoris bisects the center portion of the photograph, with Sinus Iridum (bottom center) and Mare Imbrium (lower right) dominate the bottom portion.

Moving your cursor over major geographical features in the photograph below will trigger identifying flags.
