The Full Moon Atlas


Full Moon Atlas: Sector D-3
Mare Insularum/Copernicus

Dominated by vast Copernicus (left of center), the sector features ambling Mare Insularum (roughly 900 km in diameter, covering much of the lower half of the photo), Sinus Aestuum (upper right) and the southern portion of Mare Imbrium (top left). Insularum, it should be noted, is one of the "newest" of the Lunar seas, having received its official designation by the International Astronomical Union in 1976.
