These images of the east side of the Moon are video captures. We can see Mare Tranquillitatis and Serenitatis, Crisium Sea and Nectaris and Fecunditatis.Photos seem very clear despite the fact that they are snapshots.
         Mare Fecunditatis is under Mare Tranquillitatis. Fecunditatis ("sea of Fecundity" or "sea of Fertility") is stretching 840 km . Fecuditatis basin formed in the pre-nectarian era, while the material surrounding the basin, is from nectarian era. This basin overlaps with Nectaris, Tranquillitatis and Crisium seas. Mare Fecunditatis meets Mare Nectaris along the western edge. At the eastern edge of Fecunditatis is the crater Langrenus.
