Although these craters appear as oval, they look like that because the image captures a region on the western edge of the Moon, west of Mare Humorum. Begining with this area are developed only hights reaching the unseen Moon from Earth, where we don't find low areas with large and dark basins, but only deep craters and rough areas.
In the picture below, the craters are labeled with their names, each with a color and those with names A, B, C, ..., are satellite craters of the main crater.
Listed here, are some large craters, as Fourier (52 km), Lacroix (38 km) and Palmieri (41 km).
