Full Moon Atlas: Sector C-2
Western Mare Imbrium/
Northeast Oceanus Procellarum
This region, where northern Oceanus Procellarum
meets Mare Imbrium, is dominated by a ragged area that
includes craters Aristarchus and Herodotus, as well
as the snaking Vallis Schröteri. The light
"rays" in the area are the result of ejecta from the
formation of Aristarchus. Many of the smaller craters in the
sector are unnamed or reference to a larger nearby crater.
Moving your cursor over major
geographical features in the photograph below will trigger
· When displayed, approximate crater
diameters (in kilometers) are shown within parenthesis.
· To move to an adjoining sector (when available),
click on the direction indicator. For example, clicking on the
"North" indicator moves you to the sector above the
current one displayed.
