Additional Information

It's a pleasure to explore the (possible) oblique impact craterlet at the southwestern part of Zernike W's rim. Zernike W is located northwest of Zernike itself. The bright spot of Zernike W's impact craterlet is noticeable near the lower right corner of LAC 49 (page 98) in the Clementine atlas. The pinpoint coordinates of the impact craterlet at Zernike W are: LON 166.64 / LAT 19.37 on the LRO's ACT-REACT Quick Map. - DannyCaes Jun 26, 2011
