Tycho Crater


A small piece of the Moon. Tycho crater! 

Located at 43.37°S, 348.68°E in the southern lunar highlands, Tycho is named after the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe. A popular amateur astronomy target and relatively young as an astrogeological feature, it features a well defined terraced outer rim, and a central peak that rises nearly 2km from the smooth crater floor.
