Lunar Mountains
The Moon features some impressive mountain ranges, such as the Apennine mountains (seen here in the bottom left of the image) and the Caucasus mountains (centre) located North of Mare Serenitatis (bottom centre). To the North of the Apennines, Mons Hadley towers 14,500ft high and is seen casting its morning shadow across the Putredine marsh (bottom left). The two craters on the terminator are Autolycus (24 mi) and the larger Aristillus (33 mi). Craters Aristoteles (53 mi) and Eudoxus (41 mi) are in the centre of the image.
