Named Features

  • Abduh (a disallowed name for Lyell A northwest of Lyell itself, see Lunar Topographic Orthophotomap 61-A2) (called Ring Nebula by D.Caes because of its remarkable appearance during Full Moon: a thin high-albedo ring around a tiny "star").
  • Air Bubbles (a nickname from D.Caes for the couple of odd depressions at the northwestern end of Rupes Cauchy).
  • Aryabhata
  • Barbara Mesa (an informal NASA-related name for the pronounced peninsula east-southeast of Maskelyne, see LPOD US-1 and Other Signposts) (once called Promontorium Acutum by J.D.Cassini, Prom. Methonis by Van Langren, Prom. Heracleum by J.Hewelcke, not named by Riccioli).
  • Bear Mountain (an informal NASA-related name for the elevation Maskelyne Alpha between Maskelyne A and Lonesome Mesa) (near the lower margin of Chart 36) (additional note about the name Bear Mountain: this is not the same as the one on the floor of the Taurus-Littrow Valley in which Apollo 17 landed!).
  • Bob's Bend (an informal NASA-related name for the arc shaped appendix north of Barbara Mesa, see LPOD above).
  • Boot Hill (an informal NASA-related name for the boot-shaped island Maskelyne Theta, south of Maskelyne, see LPOD above).
  • Cajal
  • Cape Bruce (an informal NASA-related name for the curious "hook" west of Maskelyne A, near the lower margin of Chart 36).
  • Cape Venus (an informal NASA-related name for the small peninsula-like appendage Maskelyne Zeta near the lower right corner of Chart 36) (also called Saint Theresa?).
  • Cauchy (J.Hewelcke's Insula Aea).
  • Chama Peak (an informal NASA-related name for a hillock very near the lower right corner of Chart 36).
  • Diamondback Rille (an informal NASA-related name for the rille between Maskelyne G and Maskelyne X).
  • Diana
  • Donna
  • Dorsum Lamont-Maskelyne (an unofficial name from D.Caes for the wrinkle ridge running from Lamont to Maskelyne) (see also LPOD March 11, 2014) (the part of it near Maskelyne and Maskelyne B was called Snake Ridge during the hey-days of Project Apollo).
  • Dorsum Sinas (an unofficial name from D.Caes for the wrinkle ridge west-southwest of Sinas).
  • Duke Island (an informal NASA-related name for the hillock Maskelyne Phi slightly rightward of the lower left corner of Chart 36).
  • El Greco (a disallowed name for Vitruvius G west-southwest of Lucian, see Lunar Topographic Orthophotomap 61-A1).
  • Gemini Twins (an informal NASA-related name for the couple of bowl shaped craterlets west of Barbara Mesa).
  • Grace
  • Hussein (a disallowed name for Cauchy A north-northwest of Cauchy itself, see Lunar Topographic Orthophotomap 61-A2).
  • Jansen
  • Jansen Beta (the arc-shaped pronounced hill east of Carrel, south of Jansen).
  • Lonesome Mesa (an informal NASA-related name for the pronounced peninsula east of Barbara Mesa).
  • Lost Basin (an informal NASA-related name for the irregular crater southwest of the peninsula Cape Venus).
  • Low Mesa (an informal NASA-related name for the bay-like area south-southeast of Lonesome Mesa).
  • Lucian
  • Lyell
  • Mare Tranquillitatis (Van Langren's Mare Belgicum, J.Hewelcke's Pontus Euxinus).
  • Maskelyne (Van Langren's Navei, J.Hewelcke's Insula Philyra).
  • Menzel
  • Mitika Peak (one of the rare names on Rand McNally's moonmap for the hillock Jansen Alpha immediately southwest of Jansen F, aka Cajal).
  • Noether (a disallowed name for Cauchy D east-northeast of Cauchy itself, see Lunar Topographic Orthophotomap 61-B4).
  • Rima Cauchy (once known as Fossa Cauchy, see Lunar Topographic Orthophotomap 61-A3).
  • Rupes Cauchy (once known as Fossa Casals, see Lunar Topographic Orthophotomap 61-A3).
  • Scopuli Erichtini (J.Hewelcke's disallowed name for the somewhat bright areas at Arago and Jansen).
  • Sinas (and the curious half-disc shaped plateau at the southern part of its rim) (see also at Norman in Oceanus Procellarum).
  • Sinas Skylight (an unofficial name from D.Caes for the unusual pit east-southeast of Sinas, northeast of Sinas A, see lower part of page Skylights).
  • Sinus Phasianus (J.Hewelcke's disallowed name for the east-southeastern corner of Mare Tranquillitatis).
  • Snake Ridge (an informal NASA-related name for the wrinkle ridge west-northwest of Maskelyne, north of Maskelyne B).
  • The Cape (an informal NASA-related name for the small peninsula-like appendage Secchi Alpha near the lower right corner of Chart 36).
  • Wallach
  • Wash Basin (an informal NASA-related name for the bowl-shaped crater Maskelyne W, west of Boot Hill).
  • Wendelini (Van Langren's disallowed name for Maskelyne A near the centre of the lower margin of Chart 36).
