Farside Named Features

(The following features are not formally included in the present Rükl rectangle, but they are adjacent to it and their centers are less than 10° beyond the mean limb -- so they may be seen here in whole or in part with a favorable libration)
  • Aepinus
  • Bosch
  • Hevesy
  • Lenard (see Additional Information below).
  • Lloyd's mountain (or Peter Lloyd's mountain) (87.8 degrees north, 150 degrees west, on the rim of Rozhdestvenskiy). Mentioned by Peter Lloyd in Chuck Taylor's LUNAR OBSERVING group.
  • Plaskett

Additional Information

Lenard

  • A bay-shaped crater at the farside part of Hermite's rim is officially called Lenard since 2008. It could be observed during favourable libration. See also LAC 1 in B.Bussey's and P.Spudis's Clementine Atlas of the Moon.
