The Full Moon Atlas

Full Moon Atlas: Sector H-2
Lunar South Pole

The dense crater field leading toward the Moon's south pole features the vast Clavius walled plain (225 kilometers in diameter), visible near the upper left corner of the photograph, and a cluster of large craters which includes Moretus (114 km), Curtius (95 km), Gruemberger (94 km), Short (71 km) and Cysatus (49 km), visible in the lower center portion of the photo. The light-colored rays appearing in the upper left corner emanate from Crater Tycho.

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.
