Managing to overcome that difficulty I still managed some fairly decent shots, despite being taken through the double glazing (with gas prices as they are, I wasn't risking opening the window and heating the street).
- A: the Mare Crisium or Sea of Crises
- B: The crater Tycho, named after Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe and measuring over 53 miles across.
- C: the Mare Serenitatis or Sea of Serenity. On the Eastern edge of this area, both Luna 21 and Apollo 17 landed.
- D: the bright crater Copernicus. Some 58 miles across and of course, named after Nicolaus Copernicus.
- E: the Mare Tranquilitatis or Sea of Tranquility. This was the landing site for the first manned mission to the moon in 1969 and from where Neil Armstrong said "The Eagle has landed".
- F:the dark spot of Plato, a lava-filled crater about 68 miles across.
- G: the very bright crater Aristarchus. This crater is named after Greek astronomer Aristarchus of Samos and is about 25 miles in diameter.
