List of east features of the Moon. astronomy lecture



East of the Moon is marked by several interesting features. Most notably is Mare Crisium, a "sea" visible from the Earth with the naked eye as an isolated spot by other seas, dark in colour.
 Notable craters on the east side of the Moon are Posidonius, Petavius ​​and Langrenus, which are the largest in size.
 Even if it seems that East of the Moon has not too many huge craters, actually there are many  small craters as we can see in the list below.
