The south of the Moon is full of countless craters, where large basins of lava are missing. Craters Heraclitus and Licetus (90/75 km) are some of seen in these images processed in Registax.
Heraclitus is a crater divided into two, over the edges of which are being overlapped two craters: to the south, Heraclitus D (52 km) and to the north, Licetus, Heraclitus being located between the two.

In the picture below you can identify each crater including satellite craters in this area. We enumerate here craters as Lilius (61 km), Cuvier (75 km), Zach (71 km) and Jacobi (68 km).

In this area, no manned missions were carried out due to highlands, but only over large areas such as basaltic lava basins that are much smoother, and which can tell us much more about the composition of the Moon.

Heraclitus crater is named after Heraclitus of Ephesus (535 -. C. 475 BC). He was a pre-Socratic Greek philosopher, a native of the Greek city Ephesus, Ionia, on the coast of Asia Minor.
