Lunar
Names & Places



Features on the moon were named after famous scientists or landscape on Earth. Compare the smaller labeled pictures to the larger image of the moon here.

These  images were taken with an electronic CCD (charge-coupled device) camera by Dave Lane at the Burke-Gaffney Observatory, St. Mary's University in Nova Scotia, Canada.


Astronauts first landed on the Moon at the Sea of Tranquillity.
