Sirsalis. Craters on terminal. Astro snapshots.

Many of this area lunar craters are in darkness or in the terminal, at the boundary between light and shadow. Here i have zoomed the crater Sirsalis (42 km) about which I never discussed. It is superimposed over another crater, slightly larger in size Sirsalis A (49 km), and from this we understand that Sirsalis is newer. At this phase can be seen both craters in shade to about 80%.

On their northeast notice a dark "hole" because the land is below the surroundings. This hides the crater Sirsalis Z (91 km). On northeast of Sirsalis, is the crater Sirsalis D (35 km), and northeast of this is Sirsalis E (72 km), which is almost completely flooded.

Distance: 361125 km
Phase: 98.8% (0% = New, 100% = Full)
