        Aristillus (55 km.) big-bottom-foto, is a prominent lunar crater that lies to the east of Mare Imbrium. To the north in photo is Autolycus (39 km), smaller, while on the northeast is Archimedes (83 km.), which is not visible in the shaddow.Montes Caucasus are in the photo left, and above are Montes Apenninus.
      Aristillus's edge is large, irregular exterior is relatively easy to distinguish due to the surrounding flat surface. The impact created a ray system that extends over a distance of 600 kilometers. The edge is generally circular in shape. In the middle of the crater are three peaks, which have a height of about 0.9 km.
       Autolycus is a lunar impact crater that is located in the south-east of Mare Imbrium.

Pozele tale sunt prea negre. Mult prea intunecoase. Incearca sa le mai luminezi ! Probabil ai o problema cu setarile de monitor si tu le vezi bine, dar noi , toti ceilalti le vedem numai negura totala !
