Lunar crater Timocharis

Lunar crater Timocharis

Fig. 2.19 . Astronauts on board the Apollo 15 mission took this image of the medium-sized crater Timocharis, about 34 kilometers across, in August 1971. The deposits and ejected material have been thrown outward in the radial direction by the meteorite impact that created the primary crater with its circular rim. Smaller secondary craters are located outside this material (lower left). (Courtesy of NASA.)
