Additional Information

- Dark halo craterlet on the north-western part of Neujmin's floor. This dark halo craterlet is an eye-catching feature on the printed version of the LAC 101 region in B.Bussey's and P.Spudis's Clementine Atlas of the Moon (page 202). - DannyCaes Feb 25, 2010
- It's really a pleasure to explore the inner slopes and floor of this peculiar dark halo craterlet via the LRO's ACT-REACT Quick Map! The pinpoint coordinates of this craterlet's central floor are: LON: 124.67, LAT: -26.15 If you choose 2 m/pix, you are looking straight at the flat floor and sharp contact of the floor and inner slopes! - DannyCaes Jun 12, 2011


Grigory Nikolaevich Neujmin (January 3, 1866 – December 17, 1946) was a Soviet/Russian astronomer. He is credited with the discovery of 74 asteroids, and notably 951 Gaspra and 762 Pulcova. He also discovered or co-discovered a number of periodic comets. The asteroid 1129 Neujmina was named in his honour.
