In these photographs, the crater Plato (101 km), is close to the terminal, the boundary between light and darkness. Shadow of the eastern edge, is covering nearly half of the crater floor, projecting the sharp peaks in some aggressive forms on the smooth plateau of the crater.
In these photos, note Montes Alpes, separated by a cut, a valley called Vallis Alpes. It has a length of 166 km. If you start with a car at one end, you will get to the other in about 2h 30m-3h.
In the upper region, is a part of Mare Frigoris, which lies to the north of these mountains, and which are scattered by a few craters. These are the Timaeus (33 km), Archytas (32 km) and Protagoras (22 km).
Egede flooded crater (37 km), is located right of the Alpes mountains, on which remained visible just the upper edge, having a ring aspect. Aristoteles (87 km), is the largest crater in the photos, which you can see on right in the images.
