Landscape at the south western edge of the moon, with the interesting crater Wargentin, filled up to the rim with lave, so that the crater floor resembles a high plateau. the crater Pingré lays at the inner side of the wall of a moon-basin, and has a diameter of 300 km.
NASMYTH James Nasmyth (1808 - 1890) Scottish Engineer. Inventor of the steam-pile, improved the steam-hammer. Built and provided telescopes, Selenologist and author of several books on the surface of the Moon.
Crater. (80Km / 47Mi ř ) (Dept: 2,300m /7,000ft) (50.5°S, 56.2°W) Circular formation forming an interesting trio with Wargentin and Phocylides. Few steep slopes overlapped by Wargentin to the North-West. Few high walls crushed by Phocylides to the South and supporting Nasmyth D to the North. Flat floor filled with lava and sprinkled with craterlets that get larger towards the center.
Crater. (32Km / 19 Mi ř ) (49 S, 46 W) (Dept: 1,500m / 4,500ft) (48.8° S, 45.7° W) Isolated circular formation. Few steep slopes supporting Noggerath J to the West Noggerath H to the South-West and Noggerath G to the South. Few high walls ridden by three craterlets to the South. Flat floor filled with lava.
PHOCYLIDES - Johannes (Jan) Fokker Holwarda. (Born: 1618, Holwerd, Friesland - died: 1651) Dutch Astronomer. Was convinced that stars move, and are not stationary like most people believed at that time. Discoverer of Mira's (Omicron Ceti's) variation in brightness in 1638.
Crater. (117Km / 69 Mi ř ) (Depth: 2,100m) (52.9° S, 57.3° W) Walled plain, forming an interesting trio with Wargentin and Nasmyth. Few steep slopes overlapping Nasmyth to the North supporting Phocylides C and J to the North-East and Phocylides J to the South-West. Few high walls ridden by Phocylides F to the South, flat floor filled with lava. Numerous craterlets, larger to the North-East. Breakthrough connecting Phocylides F to the center. Floor cover by lava.
PINGRÉ - Alexandre Guy Pingré. (11 September, 1711 – 1 May, 1796) French Theologian, Geographer and Astronomer. Author of "Cométographie", a list of up to than known Comets, with as last in the list the planet Uranus just discovered by Herschel, and at that time still mistakenly seen as a comet.
Crater. (87Km / 51Mi ř ) (Dept: 300m / 900ft) (49.6° S, 60.2° W) Biggest representative of the rare class of craters filled up till the brim with dark lava (non-existent walls), the heightened circular floor is intersected by many veins or wrinkles. Steep slopes overlapping Nasmyth to the South-East, the Crater is forming a trio with Nasmyth and Phocylides. Hills.
