en:Mare Australe is located in the southeastern hemisphere
of the moon. It overlaps the near and far sides of the moon, and is 603 miles in diameter. The basin containing the mare is of the Pre-Nectarian epoch, while the actual mare material is of the Upper Imbrian epoch. Smooth, dark volcanic basalt lines the bottom of the mare. Notice the crater Jenner in the middle of the photo, this is an Imbrian crater that was later filled with mare basalt. Just to theleft of Jenner is the crater Lamb.
