A beautiful ray crater on the far side

This week we’re featuring yet another crater posted by Moon Zoo user kodemunkey, this one is on the far side near crater Lents Lenz and has a wonderful white texture around the central impact area. It also has some areas of “black stuff” around the edge of the crater. We have a “black stuff” project on the Moon Zoo forum here: TLP Project – Black Stuff


from NAC strip: M186541565RC
Latitude: 3.3, Longitude: -100.3


Black stuff on the northern edge of the crater.


Detail of debris flow down the crater wall.

This unnamed crater is mentioned in this article where it is called the most beautiful raycrater of the entire moon’s surface.

See LPOD lunar photo of the day, 12 December 2007 for a great image of the crater.
