Lacus Mortis, in Latin "Lake of Death", is 151 km in diameter, and is a plain of basaltic lava flows, located on the north-east of the Moon. It lies south of Mare Frigoris, being separated from the sea, by a thin arm terrain. South is Lacus Somniorum.

  Visible east of the midpoint, is the crater Burg. The west of Lacus Mortis, contains an extensive system of cracks in zig-zag, called Rimae Burg, spanning a distance of approximately 100 kilometers.

Burg (Bürg) -40 km in diameter is located at the center of Laus Mortis. To the south and southeast are the pair craters Plana and Mason (44 and 43km). To the west, beyond the edge of Lacus Mortis, is the prominent crater Eudoxus.
Burg's edge is nearly circular, and the interior is bowl-shaped, and there is a high mountain situated in the center. Over the crest of the mountain, some observers have noted a small crater, like a pit.

Aristotle and Euxodus are two craters to the left in photo, below each other.
