Registax: crater Posidonius astronomical images.

Posidonius crater is beautiful. These images presents many interesting features. The most interesting of these is a semi-circular wall of the inside floor of the east. Posidonius A, with a diameter of 11 km, is located near the center of the floor. Notice that the eastern edge is higher than the west, which suggests that in this crater when was first flooded, the lava entered in the northwest.

Inside the crater, at west, there is another wall that doubles the main wall. This is called Rima Posidonius.

Other interesting craters near Posidonius, are:
Chacornac, 51 km north whose wall, stuck to Posidonius was not visible as much as in these pictures. That wall is thicker than the rest of it, and has a height of about 1.5 km.
Posidonius B, 6 km, and J, which are located at north, over the first wall of Posidonius, and the second is north of B. Also, Posidonius J, is now called Michael Jackson, after the artist with the same name, who sang and composed pop music.
Lacus Somniorum plateau in the dim light located north of Posidonius.
On the right in the pictures, there are some mountains that are lit partly by the Sun. They belong to the larger mountains, which stretch more than the photos, called Montes Taurus.
The pictures above are images processed in registax.
