Lambert Home

Move your mouse over the picture to see the names of some of the features.

This is a fairly featureless area of central Mare Inbrium.  Lambert and Timocharis are the main craters here.  They must be more recent than the flooding of the mare (about 3,300 million years ago). Timocharis is slightly the larger and deeper of the two at 36 Km in diameter and 3100 metres deep.   Lambert, 31 Km in diameter and 2700 metres deep, is at the junction of two wrinkle ridges, which don't show up even in this low-sun shot.  Heinrich and McDonald are very similar at 9 Km in diameter and 1400 mtres deep.
The picture was taken with a ToUcam attached to my LX200 with a X2 adaptor lens at 04:02 UT on 7th October 2004 when the Moon was 22.8 days old.
