Visual astronomy Mare Humorum Video.

The first thing that crosses my mind when I think of Mare Humorum, is crater Gassendi (110 km) (minute 1:31), a crater shaped as a diamond ring, north west of this circular basin on thr Moon.

Not much to see on Mare Humorum but only many small craters which are spread on the smooth plateau with the exception of Puiseux (25 km), but on the edges we see features that can not be overlooked.

On the edge of east, west and south of the basin are large craters as Doppelmayer (64 km), Hippalus (58 km) south and east, both having similar shapes because they were partially flooded and a part of their edges disappeared under lava basin, leaving them with a semicircle form.
