Additional Information

  • IAU page: Cameron
  • Depth data from Kurt Fisher database
    • Westfall, 2000: 2.19 km
    • Viscardy, 1985: 1.1 km
  • The shadow in the rectified oblique view of LO-IV-191H indicates a depth of about 2250 m. - Jim Mosher


  • Named for Robert Curry Cameron (1925-1972), an American astronomer.
  • This replacement name for a formerly lettered crater was introduced on LTO-61C2 (March 1974, for which it served as the chart title). It appears in the cumulative list of approved names in IAU Transactions XVB (1973). Since it does not appear in any prior IAU Transactions, it was probably approved at the 1973 meeting. Biographical information was unofficially reported in Ashbrook, 1974. - Jim Mosher
  • Perhaps interesting to know and/or to search information about Winifred Sawtell Cameron who investigated Transient Lunar Phenomena.- DannyCaes Mar 19, 2013
