MoonMapping – Lacus Somniorum, ‘The Lake of Dreams’


I took the photo on the left last November, the Moon was waning, a couple of days after full. On the right is my map of the  area. This area is called Lacus Somniorum, which is Latin for The Lake of Dreams. For some idea of scale, the small crater ‘Grove’ near the middle is about 17 miles wide. I’m hoping to get a similarly clear shot of the Bay of Rainbows soon. Lunar coolness!
