Farside Directory - Ridge
Anderson is a 109 km lunar impact crater that is located on the
lunar Far Side. It is located to the northwest of the crater
Sharonov, and the satellite crater Sharanov X is attached to the
southeast rim of Anderson. To the northeast the peculiar
formation, not shown here, is Buys-Ballot (Ridge Section 098),
and to the east-southeast lies the larger crater Spencer Jones .
Below Spence Jones is the crater Papaleksi. The outer rim of
Anderson is heavily worn and eroded. Small craters overlie the
southeastern and southwestern rims. The interior is relatively flat,
with multiple tiny craters covering parts of the floor. The most
prominent of these is Anderson L, located near the southeastern rim.
Anderson L is also commonly known as the Anderson Finger. The Apollo
mission files linked below contain a number of interesting images.
