Impact Crater Chain On Moon
Apollo 11
July 16, 1969

An Apollo 11 oblique view of the lunar farside. The linear group of small craters is located within the large International Astronomical Union (IAU) crater no. IX, and is centered at 139.5 degrees east longitude and 7 degrees north latitude. The absence of shadows is due to the high sun angle. The crater chain is approximately 34 statute miles in length; and the large crater adjacent to the crater chain is about 10.5 statute miles in diameter.
