Rim of Oudemans Crater

Rim of Oudemans Crater

On the Rim of Oudemans Crater
The purpose of this observation is to capture the degraded rim of Oudemans Crater to the northeast. Specifically, we wish to observe the possible impact melt rock on the floor of Oudemans that may have flowed into the canyons to the northeast of the crater. Unlike some craters, Oudemans Crater does not have alluvial fans on its floor. In places, its rim has a terrace. It was named for Dutch astronomer Jean Abraham Chrétien Oudemans.
