Video by astronomical telescope-near Western Mare Crisium

This stabilized video presents west of Crisium Sea. The clip starts with the large crater Cleomedes (126 km) in the north of the sea. Images goes along the west of the sea, to south, when Macrobius and Tisserand craters appear, then the bright ray crater Proclus (28 km).

  We go forward and climb the Mare Crisium plateau, where we see two isolated craters: the smaller left is Peirce (19 km), and the bigger on right is Picard (23 km).

In the bottom-right corner begins to see a bit of Mare Fecunditatis.
We visually keep on eye the Mare Crisium, and we reach its southern edge, where Firmicus (56 km) and Apollonius (53 km) craters takes shape, and then there are two large plates: Mare Spumans, on the top, and Sinus Succesus on the bottom of the screen.
