- Frame 8, made by ZOND 8, shows Chalonge near the frame's lower margin. Research: Danny Caes
Chalonge lies just some 150 kilometres away west from the outer ring (Montes Cordillera) that form part of the Orientale Basin -- a basin of the Imbrium period (3.85 - 3.15 bn years). The crater looks relatively fresh lying here on the stingy, wavy texture ejecta blanket of said basin, and on close inspection portions of its inner walls seem to have slumped down inwards onto its floor making it quite bowl-shaped in character.- JohnMoore2

- On page 215 (LAC 107) of the Clementine Atlas (2004) the name Chalonge is not printed (this crater is still called Lewis R).- DannyCaes Oct 16, 2011
