Left: Lunar Orbiter view Right: Clementine view -- both from Map-A-Planet. See the Lettered Craters image below for identification of Evans which is the small, roughly hexagonal crater at center. The larger, also roughly hexagonal crater to its lower left is Evans Q. Both nearly disappear in the high Sun Clementine image. Wan-Hoo, smaller than Evans, is just outside Evans Q at the 10 o'clock position. The shadowed crater in the lower right corner of the overall field is Ioffe.
