The Moon: Mare Marginis

Mare Marginis

  • Mare Marginis lies on the very edge of the lunar nearside.
  • It has an irregular outline, and it appears to be fairly thin.
  • In contrast to most mare, Marginis is not centered on any clear, large impact basin.
  • Insteed, it marks a low-lying region of the highlands where mare lavas were just able to reach the surface.
