62.Schickard

Mountainess area at the south-west edge of the visible part of the Moon, bordering Mare Humorum to the north. Here we find one of the biggest walled plains, Schickard, with its dark spotted floor. Near Clausius we find a small Mare as yet nameless.

DREBBEL - Cornelis Drebbel.. (1572 -1631) Dutch Physicist and Technician worked on microscopes and telescopes.

Crater. (30km/18Mi ) (3,500m /10,600ft) (41S, 49W) Isolated formation with lengthened shape, a steep slopes supporting some craterlets to the South. Very high walls.

SCHICKARD - Wilhelm Schickard (1592 - 1635) German mathematician and astronomer, tried as first one to triangulate meteors as they entered the athmosphere, by observing them from different locations at the same time, to find out at what height they travel and how far.

Crater. (227km/140Mi ) (Height: 1.5 km/4,921ft) (44S, 55W) Large crater, with a lava covered floor.
