Two major mountain ranges divide two other features of the lunar landscape. Where these two meet is the prominent mountain Mons Hadley, named for British optician and instrument maker John Hadley — Apollo 15 landed here in July The lunar Alps, the Montes Alpes, sweep off to the northwest, enclosing the perfect oval crater, Plato.
On the barren floor of the Mare Imbrium are two of the most impressive single mountain peaks on the surface of the moon, Mons Piton and Mons Pico. The Mons Piton has a base 16 miles 25 kilometers in diameter and towers 7, feet 2, m over the surrounding plain. The Mons Pico is even more impressive, with a base measuring 9 by 16 miles 15 by 25 km and a height of 7, feet 2, m. Both of these are named after mountains on the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands. Although these mountains look impressive under the low light of a rising sun, they really are quite gentle when compared to the mountains of Earth.
If you look again in a day or two, they will be practically invisible except for their whiter color.
