Petavius Crater


Taken 15 Feb 2013. Petavius is a large impact crater located to the southeast of the Mare Fecunditatis, near the southeastern lunar limb. The convex crater floor has been resurfaced by lava flow, and displays a rille system named the Rimae Petavius. The large central mountains are a prominent formation with multiple peaks.
