 Sea of Nectar (Mare Nectaris)-plateau above on the left in the pictures, is filled with volcanic lava and is situated between Sea Tranquility (Mare Tranquillitatis) and the Sea of Fecundity (Mare Fecunditatis). At south east of Mare Nectaris is a small crater like a point known as Rosse crater (12 km.). Mare Nectaris is 101.000 km ² and it is a bay of the Sea of Tranquility (Mare Tranquillitatis).

        At the bottom of the sea you can see a horseshoe-shaped crater called Fracastorius (124 km.).
     The two craters, which are intertwined in the left of photos are Theophilus and Cyrillus, and the one that looks like Theophilus and Cyrillus, little lower, is called Catharina. A chain forming like mountains are Rupes Altai and at the end is Piccolomini crater (88 km.).
