Marius crater on the Moon.

Marius (41 km), is an isolated crater on Oceanus Procelarum. A "ray" ejected from the impact that formed the crater Kepler reach it as we see in these pictures. It has the same color as the floor of Procellarum basin, a sign that it was flooded by lava.

Marius is isolated, but at great distances is bordered by Reiner crater (30 km) to the southwest, Kepler (32 km) to the southeast and Aristarchus (40 km) to the northeast.
