Lacus Hiemalis is probably one of the most unknown (or less known) officially named low-albedo regions on the moons surface. Thanks to crater Daubrée at its northeastern border (and the curious "bright broken ring" appearance of it during high solar illumination) this lunar lake is quite easily detectable through all sorts of telescopes.- DannyCaes Aug 9, 2013
