In this area dominates large areas of lava. Mare Vaporum is located west of Manilius crater (39 km). It is the dark region of the image. The shades of color are variable. In the southern part of the basin we see a darker belt near Rima Hyginus, which makes us understand that the soil in the area is more concentrated in the composition.
Manilius crater is quickly noticed because of its brightness in these images. When the sun shines it at a high angle, it is observed the rays with a high albedo starting from it. These range up to 300 km from the crater.
On the north and east of Manilius, are located the 4 lakes: Doloris, Gaudii, Lenitatis and Hiemalis. To the east of them, we see smaller bright crater, Menelaus (27 km).
