Craters on the surface of the Moon Zucchius Bettinus and Segner.

This are Moon's craters from south-west, like Zucchius (64 km), Bettinus (71 km) and Segner (67 km), the latter being almost completely flooded by lava. The image is rotated for easier viewing, so to not look at this area as it should, upside down.

These craters are near the terminal, which makes us to see them in a different light than other times. Between Bettinus and Segner, is a valley that stretches to the edge of the elongated crater Schiller (180 km). On this smooth valley, there are craters like Rost A (39 km) and Weigel (36 km).
