CAPELLA
Directory - Section 47

BRIEF DESCRIPTION
This "continental" promontory separates Mare Tranquilitatis from Mare Nectaris. The "continental" area is traversed by the rilles Rimae Gutenberg. The edge of M. Nectaris is dominated by a prominent pair of craters, Capella and Isidorus. The double, pear-shaped crater Torricelli and the small crater Censorinus, which is one of the brightest objects on the Moon, also contribute to the character of the region. Refer to your copy of the Antonin Rukl lunar atlas chart, page 121.
