Moon Atlas: Sector C-1
Northeast Oceanus Procellarum
region, where northern Oceanus Procellarum
meets Mare Imbrium, is dominated by a ragged area that
includes craters Aristarchus and Herodotus, as
well as the snaking Vallis Schröteri. The light "rays" in
the area are the result of ejecta from the formation of
Aristarchus. Many of the smaller craters in the sector are
unnamed or reference to a larger nearby crater.
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.
