    Gentlemen of Wikispaces, it was (and still is) a pleasure to be aboard your wonderful ship. Unfortunately, the sea around and below it seems to contain too much methane

    During the late 1800s and well into the 1900s it seemed that every book that described the craters, mountains and other features of Earth's moon was titled The Moon. In my mind this came to stand for an encyclopedia-like series of descriptions of features on the lunar surface. In general, more recent books, especially those by professional scientists, describe the processes that formed and modified the Moon, and the surface features themselves are no longer described systematically. But for many lunar observers and others thinking about the Moon as a place, knowledge of individual features is important.
    This wiki THE MOON (or rather: THE LESS-KNOWN MOON) is an adventurous exploration. It is an experiment to collect data about individual features, arranged alphabetically by name. As a wiki-contributor anyone (after registering) can add or edit every entry. I encourage folks interested in the Moon to contribute to the site.

    I can't get rid of this thought...
    About those undressed bulbous body parts... you can't imagine the daily dull things I hear when there's a conversation on the workfloor. One can't call these conversations most intelligent (au contraire). Most of my co-workers talk to me about "necessary" joyful happenings in life, such as... "You really should get a woman with bulbous behind, the size of... (...) ", or... "Isn't it time for you to grab a big fat woman and... (...) ".
    Sigh...
    Welcome to the year 2018... The year TWO-THOUSAND EIGHTEEN...
    Without self-hypnosis (mental escapism) and a certain degree of lunar fascination, life would be impossible, or... just a daily cascade of utter dull and hopeless experiences and parlance. Is THIS what it's all about in life?!?! (I don't want to think about it, but I guess 99.9 percent of the World Wide Web depends on that sort of dull undressed bulbous "happiness").

    Milichius Pi
    (there are presumably many more of these, including some corresponding to features in the GLR list, but they are not mentioned there)
    Other possible domes
    Very small dome (~0.3 km in diameter) northwest of crater Vitruvius G JohnMoore2.

    Additional Information
    Domes can be produced either by an extrusion of volcanic material onto the surface, similar to shield volcanoes on Earth ("extrusive comes"); or as the result of an uplifting of the surface due to pressures from magma or chemical changes below the surface, similar to laccoliths on Earth ("intrusive domes").

    Near Gauss was Wilkins and Moore's so-called Mare Incognito, a name which was not accepted by the I.A.U.
    To the east of Gauss was Liddiard, another name proposed by Wilkins and Moore, but not accepted by the I.A.U. Liddiard was an English electrical engineer.

    The LROC's BIG SHADOWS version of the region of St.John (on the Act-React Quick Map) shows us a very difficult to locate "crater". See: http://bit.ly/2EAfRyy (was it really worth to call this shallow ruin St.John?).

    Is there some sort of "tendency" of these weird chaotic appearances to show up only on the moon's farside and at the eastern parts of mare-like crater floors? DannyCaes Feb 9, 2018
