Wilhelm and surroundings 06/2006 - Douglas Thomson
The area southwest of Palus Epidemiarum, or The Marsh of Epidemics. The large flooded crater at top right is Pitatus (97km), and below are the eroded craters Wurzelbauer (88km) to the left and Gauricus (79km) to its right. Left of Wurzelbauer, half way to centre of the image, the small half-illuminated crater with the tiny craterlet on its rim is Cichus (41km- the tiny craterlet is a mere 11km across), and another jump to the left takes us to the mare-filled crater Capuanis (60km) just above centre of image. The old, eroded crater at bottom right is Wilhelm (107km) with the smaller craters around the southwest rim evidence of later impacts.
