Mare Tranquillitatis (Latin for Sea of Tranquillity) is a lunar mare that sits within the Tranquillitatis basin on the Moon, once thought to be an ocean. The basin has irregular margins and lacks a defined multiple-ringed structure, likely formed as a result of a very large impact in the Moon’s early history more than 3.9 billion years ago. In February 1965, the Ranger 8 spacecraft was deliberately crashed into the Mare Tranquillitatis, after successfully transmitting 7,137 close-range photographs of the Moon in the final 23 minutes of its mission.
