Pseudo Concentric Crater
The southeastern one of the couple of unnamed craterlets at the western part of the northern "arc-rim" of Hall seems to "act" or to "behave" like a veritable Concentric Crater (CC), especially on certain photographs made through terrestrial telescopes, for example; see LPOD Lonely Twins by Ramon Garcia Duran.

Additional Information

Depth data from [/Kurt%20Fisher%20crater%20depths Kurt Fisher database]
  • Arthur, 1974: 1.14 km
  • Viscardy, 1985: 1.14 km
  • Cherrington, 1969: 1.79 km


  • Named for Asaph Hall (October 15, 1829 – November 22, 1907), an American astronomer who is most famous for having discovered the moons of Mars (namely Deimos and Phobos) in 1877. He determined the orbits of satellites of other planets and of double stars, the rotation of Saturn, and the mass of Mars.
  • This feature was not listed in Mary Blagg's [/Collated%20List Collated List], however it was inserted as Catalog Number 494a in the original IAU nomenclature of [/Named%20Lunar%20Formations Named Lunar Formations]. The name is there attributed to [/Krieger Krieger], but a footnote says that Hall was used by [/Debes Debes] to label a different(?) "ill-defined" feature (Collated List Cat. No. 493) known as [/G.%20Bond Bond] a in [/Neison%2C%201876 Neison, 1876]. That feature, northeast of [/G.%20Bond G. Bond], was not named in NLF. Instead, the Lunar Committee assigned the name [/G.%20Bond Bond] A to a crater to the south of [/G.%20Bond G. Bond].
  • A note in [/IAU%20Transactions%20XIIB IAU Transactions XIIB] suggests the name Hall was also used by Franz for the crater now known as [/Baade Baade].
  • Between craters Hall, [/Maury Maury], and Maury A (Lamech's "Touchet") is an area in [/Lacus%20Somniorum Lacus Somniorum] which is called Lacus Locusta, or Lobster Lake by the dedicated moon-observer RonB(ee).
