Moon Atlas: Sector B-4
Northern Mare Serenitatis
The northern shores of Mare Serenitatis
(along the lower center section of the photograph), with Lacus Somniorum (right of center) and Lacus Mortis (above
center; Crater Bürg is located at its heart).
The large craters Aristoteles (upper
left), Eudoxus (left of center) and Posidonius
(lower right) are prominent in this region, as is the Montes
Caucasus range (lower left). Slightly north of Posidonius'
rim is Posidonius J, which was given the honorary designation
Michael Joseph Jackson in
July 2009 as a memorial to the legendary entertainer.
The extreme eastern sections of Mare Frigoris
(upper left corner) and Mare Imbrium (bottom left corner)
are also visible here.
