Two of the younger lava flows described in figure 65 are here followed northeastward to their terminations (see arrows) near the center of Mare Imbrium. The narrowness of the flows is somewhat accentuated by the obliquity of this view. From the postulated fissure vent near Euler ß to the farthest terminal lobe is about 420 km. The mare ridge
at A must have been nonexistent or at least much more subdued at the time the flow passed that point, otherwise the flow would have ponded behind the ridge. The spray of irregular craters in the center foreground was formed by material ejected from Copernicus, 460 km to the south.  - G.G.S.
