Mare Vaporum, the "sea of vapors", is located between
the southwest rim of Mare Serenitatis, and the southeast
rim of Mare Imbrium. The lunar material surrounding the
mare is from the Lower Imbrium epoch, and the mare 
material is from the Eartosthenian epoch. The mare lies in
an old basin or crater that is within the Procellarum basin.
The crater Manilius can be seen as the bright circular object
to the right of the mare. You can barely make out some of 
the rays coming off of the crater. To the south is a light 
colored thin line. This feature is Rima Hyginus. In the 
upper left hand side of the photo is the mountain range
Montes Apenninus.
