Full Moon Atlas: Sector G-5
On the visible Moon's extreme southeastern edge
lies Mare Australe, parts of which extend to the far side.
A portion of Australe's 150,000 square kilometer expanse can be
seen along the orb's curve at right in the photograph. Other large
formations in the region include the craters Janssen (lower
left) and Furnerius (upper right). In the shadows near the
upper left corner is Crater Piccolomini.
Moving your cursor over major
geographical features in the photograph below will trigger

diameters (in kilometers) are shown within parenthesis.
· To move to an adjoining sector (when available),

"North" indicator moves you to the sector above the
current one displayed.
