To the east of the immense flooded crater Eddington (125 km), is a small crater named Seleucus (43 km). It is isolated on Oceanus Procellarum, and at this lunar phase is bright. A bright streak of light move to its east. This seems to arise from the north of Montes Agricola, passes Seleucus and stops bifurcated east of crater Cardanus (50 km).
At Eddington is observed its flooded rim in the south-east. Dark spots in the picture are actual hardened lava that flooded all the craters in this area, and the white spots are the edges of these craters.
On the top-left in image are seen some a bit of crater Krafft (51 km), in whose center is a mountain peak.
