The Lake of Dreams or Lake of Dreamers (Lacus Somniorum in Latin) is the largest of the lunar areas designated as "Lake".   The center of it's  selenographic coordinates  is 38°N latitude and 29.2°E longitude.  It is a "plain" with a diameter of 237 miles.  To it's southwest, this plain connects to the Sea of Serenity through a wide gap that passes to the

 

north of the crater Posidonius.  The first photo below is the Lake of Dreams.  Following are two photos of Crater Posidonium. This crater is 58.6 miles in diameter, and has a depth of 1.42 miles.  It's coordinates

 

are 31.8°N  29.9°E.  It is on the southern edge of the Lake of Dreams, and on the western edge of the Sea of Serenity.  Note that it's floor is fractured. The last photo is of the mysterious floor of the Lake.

 

 

 

One of it's spectacular attractions is the large Crater

 

Daniell, which is oval shaped with a width of 14.2

 

miles and a north to south length of 18.5 miles. 

 

It's center coordinates are 35.3°N latitude and

 

31.1°E longitude.

 

 

 

To the southeast of Crater Daniell, is the monolithic

 

Crater Posidonius, with it's straight up towering walls

 

which can be seen for many miles.  The plains area

 

inside Posidonius is 58.64 miles in diameter, and

 

has a depth of 1.42 miles.  Posidomius is on the

 

northern edge of the Lake of Dreams, with center

 

coordinates of 31.8°N latitude and 29.9°E longitude.

 

 

 

To the north of the Crater Daniell lies the Crater

 

Grove, near the northern edge of the Posidonius

 

formation.  Grove has a diameter of 17.27 miles

 

and a depth of 1.48 miles.  It's coordinates are

 

40.3°N latitude and 32.9°E longitude.  The Lake

 

of Dreams is situated in the northeastern sector

 

of the near side of the moon.  These smaller,

 

unique craters offer an excellent opportunity for

 

sightseeing and as well as for the exploration

 

of mining in the near future.
