Mare Crisium, Mare Undanum and Mare Marginis

This image was shot when the Moon was between 3 and 4 days old. Mare Crisium is lit completely, as are the surrounding mountains. To the South of Mare Crisium you can see a patch of darker material, Mare Undanum. To the east a part of Mare Marginis is visible. North of Mare Crisium lies the big crater Cleomedes with four smaller craters and a small peak on its floor.
