HERCULES
Directory - Section 14

BRIEF DESCRIPTION
A very interesting landscape with a great variety of lunar formations. The clefts in the crater Burg, and on the floor of the walled plain Posidonius, as well as the rilles Rima Daniel, all demand attention. Dark areas include the lakes Lacus Mortis, Lacus Somniorum and the NE edge of Mare Serenitatis. Refer to your Antonin Rukl lunar atlas chart, page 55.
