Lunar Photo - Posidonius

158 frames at 90% best quality in Registax.

At eastern basin Mare Serenitatis, there is an interesting crater named Posidonius (95 km). This crater is deep compared to its size, but this is because the flooded region has various basins.

As a special feature that this region has, we see that the right is different from the left area of the crater. In  Posidonius's right are landforms which are high, and on the left is a smooth basin called Mare Serenitatis.

Other craters around Posidonius that can be highlighted here, are its satellite craters, A (11 km), B (14 km) and M (10 km), and Chacornac (51 km), Michael Jackson (22 km) and Daniell (30x23 km).
