Moon Craters

Pockmarked and battered with craters from years of abuse, the moon is full of interesting landscapes, many even viewable with the naked eye. When I first viewed the moon through a high-powered telescope my eye was immediately drawn to the smooth areas, seemingly untouched by asteroids, meteorites and other space junk.  The area featured here is called “Mare Imbrium,” which means sea of showers and rain. In reality it is as cratered as the rest of the moon, but the scars are not viewable from our Earthly home.
