The Full Moon Atlas

Full Moon Atlas: Sector G-3
Tycho/Clavius South

The central southern region of the Moon's face, which is covered with a myriad of craters at every position. Included are Clavius (lower left corner), Tycho (near the left-center edge), Stöfler (near the right edge, above center), Maginus (just below center) and Orontius (just above center). Although not highly evident in the photograph below, Tycho is the source of one of Luna's most easily identifiable features — the massive ray system that dominates the southern hemisphere.

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.
