Word derived from the union of the first three letters of the English words mass concentration and used to indicate a gravitational anomaly in some lunar regions.

It is a term created towards the end of the 1960s when the first probes orbiting the Moon revealed the existence of gravity anomalies in some areas.

The largest mascon has been located in the Imbrium Sea and it seems due to the accumulation of large masses of magma as a result of the crust breakage, produced a few billion years ago, by the fall of a large steroid.
