The Full Moon Atlas

Full Moon Atlas: Sector G-1
Schickard-Wargentin Frontier/
Southwestern Limb

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 identifying flags.
· 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.
