Crater X

Crater X

The large, bright crater at the top is Tyagaraja, and the crater in the center is Zeami. Both are about 100 km wide. Those two impacts threw plumes of rock into space. The lines of rocks came back down in lines too creating chains of craters. Stevenson crater ended up with an X going through it. Zoom in.
