In addition to the the dark-floored Bowditch, the labels indicate several IAU-approved minor feature names: Edith, Bawa, Karima, Fairouz and Rima Siegfried. Bawa is a pit along the west wall of Bowditch. It is completely in shadow in this view.

Additional Information


German male name.
  • According to NASA RP-1097, "Rima Siegfried" is a Minor Feature whose name was originally intended only for use in connection with Topophotomap 100C1/S1(on which it is plotted).
  • Is Rima Siegfried the only one in the very short list of IAU-named rilles on the moon's farside?
  • Called Fossa Siegfried on Topophotomap 100C1/S1 - DannyCaes Sep 16, 2012
  • The crater between Edith and Rima Siegfried (on whose floor Karima and Fairouz lie) was given the provisional name “Siegfried” on Topophotomap 100C1/S1(and was used for its title). The rille is named after the crater, but the crater name was not approved. - Jim Mosher
