LO-IV-184H Hargreaves is just above center, straddling the south rim of 41-km Maclaurin H (which seems to be identified as part of Mare Spumans on LTO-80B1). To the southeast of Hargreaves is 14-km Morley.

  • On Kipp Teague's med-res scan of Apollo 15's orbital Hasselblad frame AS15-88-11959 (which shows the approaching CSM Endeavour against the curved lunar horizon) the crater Hargreaves is noticeable a little bit above the central part of the imaginary line from the frame's upper left corner to the centre. The dark region near the frame's upper right corner is the southern part of Mare Spumans.
  • Hargreaves was also captured on Apollo 16's panoramic ITEK-camera frames AS16-P-4414 and AS16-P-4419. To detect Hargreaves on these two frames, scroll all the way toward their right margins until you see an irregularly shaped depression with (partially) bright rim.

  • This replacement name for a formerly lettered crater first appeared on LTO-80B1. - JimMosher
  • Not to be confused with Lawrence Hargrave, although the biography of this engineer, explorer, astronomer, inventor, and aeronautical pioneer is most interesting to read and to know! - DannyCaes Mar 11, 2015
