NOTICE: JPL's Center for NEO Studies (CNEOS), which operates neo.jpl.nasa.gov, will substantially upgrade the site in early 2017, giving it a new look-and-feel, improved navigation and added content. Scripts which extract data from HTML on the current site will have to be revised to use the related API on the new site. Specifics on the new APIs will be provided here a month before the site transition takes place.

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.
