The Moon is a rugged place, in fact some mountains rise more 8 km above the locale terrain. The 4000 m tall cliff in the background is the east wall of Antoniadi crater (140 km diameter). The bottom of the small bowl shaped crater (12 km diameter) tucked behind peaks in the center ground is the lowest point on the Moon; more than 9 km below the mean radius (comparable to sea level on the Earth). Imagine orbiting the Moon as this spectacular landscape passes beneath you!
