Moon craters in darkness. Pictures by telescope.

It is not the first time I introduce you these craters, identical in sizes and shapes. Abenezra (42 km), Azophi (48 km) and Geber (45 km) form a cute trio, located in the center of the lunar disk, specifying that Abenezra is overlaying Abenezra C (44 km), an older crater but if it would have had remained whole, would still have had the same size and shape as the others mentioned above.

Sacrobosco (98 km), is also present in the images. It has frayed edges but it kept its circular shape. Inside are three small craters on the floor: Sacrobosco A (17 km), B (14 km) and C (13 km).

In the picture below are labeled craters and other lunar features in the region. To better understand this photo, you should note that the label with the name or the letter of larger craters could be found at their center, and on the small craters, you should find them around them, usually above.
