These pictures, contains a larger area of the southern Moon. Some are framed in the same image, four notable craters, as Tycho (85 km), Maginus (163 km), Orontius (122 km) and Heraclitus (90 km). Images are upside down for a better view of the southern part of the Moon, and are processed in Registax program, which helps greatly to the image quality of any cosmic bodies seen by a telescope.

Light shining over the craters, is perfect for viewing their details.
Heraclitus and Licetus (90/75 km) are beautifully described in this phase among the craters of the surroundings.

Licetus crater , is better defined than divided crater Heraclitus, and dates from the pre-Nectarian times.
It is still a crater affected with some other small craters located on the edge, and along the inner wall. Most notable are on the inner edge of the southeast and the northwest.

Licetus's floor is relatively flat, with a few bumps in the southern half. There are also some small craters in the south-west and east.

The crater is named after Fortunio Liceti, an Italian philosopher and physicist who lived in the 17th century.
