Feature identification help please

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the large valley looking feature (red arrow) have a name? I'm away from home and have no access to my books and my moon app does not name it. For context, the blue arrow points to Petavius I think.

I use the LROC Quick map with 'sunlit region' and 'shaded relief' turned on.


That one looks very good @Mr Spock, I'll take a look at it thanks.

Ok, embarrassing moment! @Mr Spock you may have recommended me this one before, or maybe someone else on the forum. Turns out I have that app and was using it last night but simply missed the name of the valley. It may have been an effect of the wine! I was surrounded by a bunch of my partner's relatives oohing and aahing at the time, never having seen the moon through a telescope before. Not exactly outreach but really nice to see people's reactions when they see it for the first time. Thanks for replying.
