The La Hire Colony (Portuguese: Colónia de La Hire) is the only libertian colony and ruthenia's extraterrestrial posession. La Hire is a solitary lunar mountain in the western Mare Imbrium. It is located to the northeast of the crater Euler, and to the west-northwest of Lambert.
The selenographic coordinates of this feature are 27.8° N, 25.5° W, and it has a maximum diameter at the base of 25 km. The mountain base has a shape roughly like an arrow head, with the point oriented toward the west-northwest. The peak has a height of 1.5 km above the surface. This feature was named after Philippe de la Hire, a French mathematician and astronomer.

History[edit | edit source]

On the 8th of March 2015, D. Guilherme da Lomellina e Berenguer claimed the lunar mountain La Hire as a libertian colony. This was due to the extinction of the Lomellinian Galactic Empire that his consort D. Tânya Correa D'Ornellas had control.
