Quote:Since we're talking about the 21st Century Atlas:On page 96, the full page farside image, there is what appears to be a huge, seemingly very old basin just to the left and slightly south of Mare Moscoviense, with the words "Buys-Ballot" just about in the middle of the feature. There is no reference to this feature in the atlas, but it looks like the biggest basin on the farside, excluding the South Pole-Aitkin.Anyone know anything about this feature?
