Copernicus Region


Recommended Posts


There are so many accidents and formations this photo honestly do not know what to talk about.
Of course, Copernicus was greatly stands in the foreground in the center of the picture, but what about the region in terminator where we have numerous domes of Hortensius and Milichius where magma ejection hole can be perfectly visible at the top?
Kepler, lit only partially is also a show piece.
The Carpathian Mountains are another remarkable training with peaks up to 2600 meters above sea level limited to the west by Tobias Mayer crater and east by Gay-Lussac with its beautiful rhyme of the same name.
In the upper right corner, just out of the picture stands Eratosthenes who along with Coprenicus is one of the keys of the lunar craters stratigraphic history.
And among them is nothing more than a beautiful ghost crater, one of the main exponents of this category of lunar craters named Stadius.
Anyway a very rich region in which he could write pages and pages of lunar history.
