Anders Jonas Ångström (August 13, 1814 – June 21, 1874) was a physicist in Sweden, one of the founders of the science of spectroscopy. From 1861 onwards he paid special attention to the solar spectrum. His combination of the spectroscope with photography for the study of the solar system resulted in proving that the sun's atmosphere contains hydrogen, among other elements. The ångström units with which the wavelength of light is measured are named for him.
The curious "ghost" crater nearby Angstrom is nicknamed Cheerio Crater by Charles Wood, see LPOD Volcanic Hinterland.
