Aristoteles

Abstract

Aristoteles (53 miles) is over 2 miles deep. The walls are extensively terraced and surround the large flat floor. There are two small off center peaks. With Eudoxus about 60 miles to the south these two craters make an attractive pair to show off about 6 days after new Moon.

Eudoxus (60 miles) is a prominent crater about 2 miles deep. The walls are terraced, but not to the extent of its northern neighbor. There is a small central peak and hills on the floor. Both of these craters, and especially Eudoxus, are surrounded by a multitude of hills. Under grazing sunlight the landscape sparkles with sunlight reflecting off the hills.
