Sacrobosco crater on the Moon.

We see in these pictures a part of the crater Sacrobosco (98 km), and three craters on its floor, Sacrobosco A (17 km), B (14 km) and C (13 km). The sun shines at a large angle enough to reduce the clarity characteristics of craters, but the image is not blurred, but simply is the bright sunlight.
Craters in the center of images are satellite craters called Sacrobosco D (24 km), F (19 km) and G (20 km).
