        In this article are photos of Moon craters in shadow from the southern region . Most are presented in other articles, such as Jacobi, Kinau, Zach and Curtius, Pentland and Scott, Sempilius, Schomberger, and Scott.

         Lilius crater (61 km) lies north of the crater Zach, and south-west  of Cuvier. South-east is slightly larger Jacobi. The interior is relatively flat with no features, but there is a high peak on central midpoint.
The crater is named after the inventor of the Gregorian calendar, Aloysius Lilius (1510-1576), also known as Lilio Luigi, Luigi Giglio, or Lilio Baldassare, who was an italian doctor, astronomer, philosopher and chronologist.
