This south western part of the moon has
some very large and unusual features worth mentioning. On the
right frame close up, we can see the very strangely shaped crater
Schiller on the center left edge as a long groove shaped feature.
Bottom right is Schickard, which contains two tones of lava fill.
And just above is the largest filled in crater of its type, Wargentin.
This is a crater that is filled to the brim with lava and appears
as a low plateau in this near terminator view.
