  • Small bowl-shaped crater Heyrovsky was captured by Lunar Orbiter IV, on several frames, such as LO-IV-192-med, in which it could be detected at the "fuzzy" lower half of the frame, south of Mare Orientale, and slightly eastward of the large (officially unnamed) "groove" which runs north of Rydberg, all the way toward the southern rim of Mare Orientale.
