Video by telescope crater Archimedes AstroInfo

A beautiful trio of craters, is in the western part of Mare Imbrium, crater Archimedes (83km) with it's smooth floor, prominent impact crater Aristillus (55km) with its central peaks, terraced walls and system of rays, and the smaller Autolycus (39 km). Montes Spitzbergen are 60 km long mountains, with peaks up to 1500 m, which in video are observed at the top of the screen, named because of their similarity to Spitzbergen Islands.

Archimedes, is a beautiful crater with flat floor, flooded with lava, which dominates the south-east of Mare Imbrium. The floor is ribbed with many rays of light emanating from Autolycus, at east, and have three very small craters, near the inner wall. The floor is flat with no features, even at very low angles of illumination.

Aristillus, is a magnificent crater, with slightly polygonal edges and a large interior wall that displays contoured terraces and has a central compact group of mountains which rise on the smooth floor.
