Visit Worldwide Topsites

Saturday, 3 May 2014

Darkness blocking half Longomontanus's floor.

Among all the craters in this phase of the areas that are very close to the terminal, two large craters are distinct: Longomontanus (145 km) and Wilhelm (107 km). Note the Longomontanus's edge shadows, peaks which are projected on its beautiful floor. Almost half of the floor is shadowed by these peaks.

Wilhelm is in the dark at a rate of about 85%. Stuck on the southwestern edge, is Lagalla (85 km) definitely an older crater than Wilhelm, as it can be seen that the latter has the whole edge, which means that its impact has occurred over the crater Lagalla, lacking edge on northeast.

Distance: 393696 km
Phase: 26.6% (0% = New, 100% = Full)
