Generally considered to be the far side's most recognizable feature, the Sea Of Muscovy ("Mare Moscoviense" in Latin) on the so-called "Dark Side of the Moon"* is one of the very rare flatlands basins in this region, and one of the most unusual locations in the Universe! Notably, this mare was named by Russian scientists who first observed it in photographs sent back by Luna 3 in 1959, and is actually a "sea within a sea."
Only 205 kilometers (about 125 miles) across, Moscoviense properties provide astounding terrain in all directions with an exclusive setting unmatched anywhere! Our offering of the first available tracts in Moscoviense are sure to grow in value for casual collectors as well as serious investors.
For a close-up view of this region, see the farside photo maps in The Full Moon Atlas.
* — Yes, we know there's no actual "dark side" of the Moon. All "sides" of the Moon — that is, the side visible from Earth and the side that isn't — are lighted by the sun throughout its orbit around our planet; that's how we get the various phases of the Moon.
