Where is Burg crater on the Moon? Astronomy images.

Burg crater (40 km) is located in the midst of Lacus Mortis. Due to its position, it is easy to locate but only through an astronomical telescope. This is a circular crater with a distinct central peak and beautiful terraced inner edge.

On the south-east of Lacus Mortis, notice two close craters, nearly flooded by lava in the past, called Mason (33x43 km) and Plana (44 km). Plana C (14 km), is attached Plana to the northwest.
