The Full Moon Atlas

Full Moon Atlas: Sector H-1
Southwestern Limb

The extreme southwestern edge of the Moon is primarily a vast crater field highlighted by several prominent formations, including Schickard (upper left corner of the photograph), Longomontanus (near the upper right corner), Schiller (the elongated crater near center) and Scheiner (near the edge at right center). A trio of noteworthy craters — Wargentin, Nasmyth and Phocylides — are clustered south of Schickard.

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.
