This Apollo 16 view of the floor of the crater King shows the location of Sita -- a fresh impact crater with a spray of bright ejecta to the east. It appears to have hit on the steep slope of what appears to be a landslide from the south rim, terminating near the part of the central peaks known as Mons Ganau. Other IAU-named features in this view are Mons André, Mons Dieter, Mons Ardeshir, and Mons Dilip.
