Mare On this page, one of my Moon is illustrated. The darken grey parts are called “Maria”. Maria is the Latin word for Seas (Mare-Sea). Ofcourse there are no real seas on the Moon as we know them on Earth.In fact they are vulcanic area’s but in the time names were given to these area’s, men thought the seas were very real. Click on the “mare” for more background information. Not all the “Mare” can be found in the picture. Some of them are located on the dark side of the Moon and some on the horizon. Find here a list of all the Maria of the Moon.
