Additional Information


  • Named from nearby crater. (Bürg)
  • The original IAU nomenclature of Named Lunar Formations had a single named rille Bürg Ir (Catalog number 654), which had reportedly been called Bürg Zeta in Neison, 1876.
  • In The System of Lunar Craters maps, Bürg I was the rille to the left (in north-up images) and Bürg II was the rille-fault to the right. Rille numbers are no longer considered official. Bürg II is sometimes unofficially called Rupes Bürg or the Bürg Fault. See Lacus Mortis Fault.
