Additional Information

  • Depth data from Kurt Fisher database
    • Westfall, 2000: 0.17 km
  • Slightly northeast of Fedorov (between Fedorov and Mons Delisle) is a curious guitar- or bottle-shaped depression. This "Guitar"/"Bottle" was photographed during the mission of Apollo 15, on black-and-white Hasselblad film: AS15-92-12470 and AS15-81-10983. Research: Danny Caes.
  • Warning: the location of the small depression Felix (between Euler and Lambert) was, on certain digital lunar atlases, erroneously positioned at Fedorov.- DannyCaes Jan 23, 2010


  • Named for A. P. Fedorov (1872-1920), a Russian rocket scientist.
  • This name was introduced on LTO-39B1 (for which it served as the title). It does not seem to have replaced a previously named feature. The name was "approved as assigned" in IAU Transactions XVIIB (1979). - Jim Mosher
