Directory - Section 21

SECTION DESCRIPTION
The south-eastern  part of Mare Imbrium and southwestern promontory of the Apennines, terminated by the crater Eratosthenes. Bright rays from the crater Copernicus are visible on the surface of Mare Imbrium under high illumination. A system of wrinkle ridges and a small dome can be seen under oblique illumination about 15 km south-south-east of the crater Beer. Refer to your Antonin Rukl atlas chart of the Moon,  page 69.
