A new header image. Clavius crater on the Moon.

These images cover a wide area of southern Moon. The most pointed of all craters, Clavius (225 km), ​​is a laced one, that should be deeper, compared to its large diameter.

I do not repeat myself in describing the beautiful Clavius​​'s unique characteristics, especially in relation to interior walls and small craters on the floor in an arc shape.

The region looks "milky" due to the Moon phase at the time. Many other large craters, but smaller than Clavius​​, are seen in images. Among these we mention Moretus (114 km), closer to the edge of the Moon, Blancanus (105 km), Scheiner (110 km), and Longomontanus (145 km).

All of these crates listed above, have satellite craters scattered around the area.
