Lunar crater Timocharis

Lunar crater Timocharis

. Astronauts on board the Apollo 15 mission took this image of the medium-sized crater Timocharis, about 34 thousand meters across, in August 1971. The deposits and ejecta have been thrown radially outward by the meteorite impact that created the primary crater with its circular rim. Smaller secondary craters are located beyond the radial ejecta. (Courtesy of NASA.)
