It is on the moon . It is the largest of the lunar mares. It was formed when lava flooded the giant crater formed when a very large object hit the moon long ago., probably an asteroid.

Fantasy author Piers Anthony in his popular Xanth series exploits the English homonym of mare to create a group of characters named after the lunar maria. Fittingly, the characters are all female horses, collectively known as the Night Mares, whose task it is to bring bad dreams to the inhabitants of Xanth. The most often seen of these characters is Mare Imbri, named for the Mare Imbrium, who features prominently in several novels, most notably Night Mare and Faun & Games.

Mare Imbrium is a vast lunar mare filling a basin on Earth's Moon. Mare Imbrium was created when lava flooded the giant crater formed when a very large object hit the moon long ago. The moon's maria (mahr'-ee-ah) (plural of mare) have fewer features than other areas of the moon because molten lava pooled in the craters and formed a relatively smooth surface. Mare Imbrium is not as flat as it was originally because later events have altered its surface. With a diameter of 1123 km it is second only to Mare Frigoris in size among the maria, and it is the largest mare associated with an impact basin. Apollo 15 landed in the southwestern region of Mare Imbrium, near the Apennine Mountains. The Imbrium Basin is surrounded by three concentric rings of mountains, uplifted by the colossal impact event that excavated it. The outermost ring of mountains has a diameter of 1300 km and is divided into several different ranges; the Montes Carpatus to the south, the Montes Apenninus to the south ...more
