|Feature on||The Moon|
|Feature type||Walled plain|
|Lunar coordinates||51.6° N, 9.3° W|
|Dimensions||Diameter 101km; depth 1,468m|
|Notes||A shallow, broad circular walled plain, Plato has a flat and almost featureless floor surrounded by a rim more than a kilometre in height. It lies among the mountains of Montes Alpes that form the southern shore of Mare Frigoris, the Sea of Cold.|
A wide circular crater, more than a hundred kilometres in diameter, in the northern latitudes of the Moon. It lies on the southern fringes of Mare Frigoris, the Sea of Cold that runs across the northern face of the Moon's nearside, at the point where that Sea borders Mare Imbrium. Though circular in shape, the location of this crater near the Moon's northwestern limb means that it appears foreshortened to an relatively narrow ellipse for viewers on Earth.
