A little humour - or dare I say 'Humorum' - a rare 18th Century map of lunar landing sites.

For the sake of complete authenticity, "impact", "land" and the names of the "vehiculi" on the map should also be Latinized!

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

I'm wondering where you got the base... why would an old moon atlas have two hemispheres?

It didn't have two hemispheres, it showed the near side twice with two different naming schemes, by Hevelius and Riccioli.
