The north of the Moon has many features to discuss. I talked about one of the regions in the article East of Sinus Iridium Bay Registax pictures , in which we described the characteristics of the eastern Sinus Iridium.
In these pictures we see more features such as a part of the Mate Frigoris (top in photos), a part of Mare Imbrium (bottom in photos), on which is situated two small distinct craters called Helicon and Le Verrier, and also observe Plato crater, upper right in photo.
Sinus Iridium is a gulf that has no resemblance on the entire surface of the Moon. Because the Moon visible from Earth is full of basins (mare), the craters have special features, not like the unseen Moon, where there are not so many basins but with highlands, mountains, deep craters full of unaffected by lava as we see on visible Moon from Earth. I would not wish that one day, the Moon to appear on our sky with the unseen part.
