Full Moon Atlas: Sector G-1
The Moon's rugged southwestern frontier, dominated
by wide Crater Schickard (227 km diameter; right of center
in the photograph), with meandering Lacus Excellentiae
visible towards the upper right corner. A trio of large craters
— Wargentin, Nasmyth and Phocylides — are
clustered south of Schickard. Among the larger craters along the
Moon's visible edge is Lagrange (160 km), at the top left
corner in the photo.
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),

"North" indicator moves you to the sector above the
current one displayed.
