Pictures by telescope. Julius Caesar, Agrippa and Godin.

Julius Caesar (90 km) is a large crater in size with a low southern edge and an interesting feature at east as more craters lined up and at west is a ditch named Rima Ariadaeus.

The floor of this crater is divided in two shades. Probably because of the basin Mare Tranquillitatis on the east, so a part of the floor is darker.

Craters Agrippa and Godin (45 and 35 km.) are left in images and Sosigenes is located at Julius Caesar's southeast.
