The Full Moon Atlas

Full Moon Atlas: Sector B-3
Northern Mare Imbrium

With Crater Plato at its crown in the band of mountains and small craters that divides it from Mare Frigoris (across the top of the photograph), Mare Imbrium's northern section includes the Montes Teneriffe (south of Plato) and the troika of craters surrounding Sinus LunicusArchimedes, Autolycus and Aristillus (lower right) — where Russia's unmanned Luna 2 became the first craft from Earth to reach the Moon's surface (1959).

Moving your cursor over major geographical features in the photograph below will trigger identifying flags.
