FRA MAURO
Directory - Section 42


BRIEF DESCRIPTION
The southern edge of Mare Insularum extends between the craters Lansberg and Fra Mauro. The lower half of the section is occupied by Mare Cognitum. Although this area is seemingly uninteresting, it contains a number of geologically important locations and therefore was one of the most regions of the Moon. This is the area where the probe Ranger 7 crashed landed and where two Apollo expeditions landed: Apollo 12 close to Surveyor 3, and Apollo 14 in the hills at the edge of the crater Fra Mauro. Refer to your Antonin Rukl lunar atlas chart, page 111.
