Bailly and (later) a dorsum

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I noted a couple of interesting features tonight - although the main crater of Bailly was in shadow, sunlight was catching the crater rim of Bailly B which made it visible in the darkness.
When I moved up to Vallis Schröteri, I noticed a dorsum that runs from the crater Nielsen to Mons Rümker. (upper middle to top middle in second photo). It's not named on my Moon Atlas though.

Good spot.  It's not labelled on any of my maps, but you can see it here on one of them:

Yep, shows here but again, not labelled. Sure it must have a name somewhere!

I've searched in vein, but as yet I've found no name for the Dorsum you mention. Therefore,  from now on it shall forevermore be named Pete_D Dorsum. It has a ring to it so it'll catch on.
