Earth's Moon - Apollo 15
Southeastern Mare Imbrium on the Moon
Apollo 15 metric camera image of Southeastern Mare Imbrium.
The 33 km diameter Timocharis crater, centered at 26.7 N, 13.1 W,
is partly visible at upper left. Note the old fractured terrain
at the right and smoother textured and ridged mare terrain at
center. The craters Feuillee and Beer are at the top of the
image, and just below at right of Beer a small crater chain can
be seen. A sinuous rille is also marginally visible at bottom
center of the image, running up to middle of the frame. The
image is about 115 km across and north is up.
