    Aristarchus – 10th September 2011 – 40km in diameter and 3.7km deep. One of the youngest and brightest of the major impact craters

    Copernicus crater – Named after the astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus. Distinctly hexagonal in shape with terracing clearly visible to the crater walls resulting from slumping of the debris following the impact which is thought to have occurred some 800 million years ago. The Copernicus crater is 93km wide, 3.8km deep and has a central peak rising 1.2km above the crater floor. Image taken in March 2012 using a Meade Lx90 200mm SCT using an imaging source camera and processed in Registax.

    Sinus Iridum plateau, adjoining Mare Imbrium. Thought to have formed between 3.2 -3.8 billion years ago. Crater floor has since filled with balsaltic lava. Sinus Iridum is some 400x260km in size. Surrounded by the Montes Jura to the west.

    Aristarchus crater, located to the north west side of the near side of the Moon is named after the Greek astronomer who was born 310 BC who proposed the Heliocentric system putting th sun at the centre of the known universe.
