Mare Australe - "Southern Sea" 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 the left of Jenner is the crater Lamb.             Source: Nasa
