Description: Elger

([/IAU%20Directions IAU Directions]) CHACORNAC.--This object, connected with [/Posidonius Posidonius] on the S.E., is remarkable for the brilliancy of its border and the peculiarity of its shape, which is very clearly that of an irregular pentagon with linear sides. I always find the detail within very difficult to make out. Two or more low ridges, traversing the floor from N. to S., and a small crater, are, however, clearly visible under oblique illumination. Schmidt draws a crater-rill, and Neison two parallel rills on the floor,--the former extends in a southerly direction to the E. side of [/Le%20Monnier Le Monnier].
