Description

This RGB composite of the prominent crater Copernicus shows some of the subtle blue, titanium-rich hues in the area. Largely situated in a flat lunar region, some ranges and a spattering of other craters give some surface variety. The ghost crater Stadius to the east of Copernicus is of particular intrigue, having been filled with the lava flows associated with the nearby Mare Insularum.
