Additional Information

  • IAU page: Head
  • The position and diameter in the title line are from Davies and Colvin, who determined the position by scaling from a known point in the Site Traverses Chart which is probably based on Lunar Orbiter III photos.
  • The much less precise official data from the IAU Planetary Gazetteer are: Lat: 3.0°S, Long: 23.4°W, Diam: 0.1 km.
