Lenard is a 48-km diameter half-crater near the north pole, straddling the far rim of Hermite. Although it is labeled on Jennifer Blue's new Lunar Orbiter-based IAU nomenclature map of LAC zone 1, its form is much clearer in the Clementine mosaic. It is slightly beyond the mean limb, but should be visible with a favorable libration (whenever the far rim of Hermite is visible). - Jim Mosher
