Besides the Apollo XI landing site and the craters Armstrong-Collins-Aldrin, this 2 pictures-panorama shows at least 8 Arago-domes, 2 Menelaus-domes and several Manilius domes. Hyginus rille, Triesneker rilles and Ariadaeus rille are also conspicuous. The illumination with the night covering soon the landing site gives a very peculiar atmosphere.
