AS17-M-0597 This small area northeast of Dawes, on the border between Mare Serenitatis and Mare Tranquillitatis, is densely populated with minor feature names because it was plotted on two of NASA's high-resolution Topophotomaps. The upper group of Robert, Mary and Isis appears on 42C3/S1 and the lower group of Osiris, Catena Brigitte, Rima Marcello, Rima Reiko and Jerik is on 42C3/S2.

Osiris was also captured on Apollo 15's orbital panoramic ITEK-camera frames AS15-P-9560 and 9565. On these frames, Osiris is detectable near the lower right end of the rille-like (or chain-like) formation known as Catena Brigitte (which is the eye-catching "diagonal groove" in both frames) (north is to the right).

Additional Information

  • Judging from the shadows, the small craters Osiris and Isis have unusually raised rims compared to other features in the area.
