  • Apollo 16's Hasselblad AS16-121-19445 could be the only Apollo-related color photograph on which the northern crater Hayn was captured. It (Hayn) is visible near the frame's upper right corner (slightly to the right of the partially depicted dark Mare Humboldtianum).

Additional Information

The Hayn-Bel'kovich Shadow

  • Hayn and Bel'kovich are two craters near the moon's northeastern limb, and curiously enough, there's a black shadow in (or near?) these craters when it's about two days before Full Moon, which is too soon to be part of the eastern limb's evening terminator! (observed by Danny Caes during the night of march the 3th, 1996)(there was Full Moon on march the 5th) (the same phenomenon was observed on january the 3th, 2015)(Full Moon on the 5th). - DannyCaes Jan 5, 2015


  • Named for Friedrich Karl Hayn (1863-1928), a German astronomer.
  • Name given by Arthur and Whitaker in Rectified Lunar Atlas (1963) and approved by IAU in 1964 (Whitaker, 1999, p234).
  • Rima Hayn A or Rupes Hayn A (two unofficial names for the pronounced rille (?) or scarp (?) on the floor of Hayn A): http://bit.ly/2CfpUuI
