- The Japanese spacecraft Hiten - Hagoromo crash-landed southeast of Stevinus (34.3° South/ 55.6° East, April 10 - 1993) and reportedly caused a brief effect visible in the infrared during the daytime.

- Radar bright at 70 cm.
- Central peak composition: GNTA2, AG, AGN & AN (Tompkins & Pieters, 1999)
- Stevinus and its satellite crater Stevinus A are on the ALPO list of bright ray craters, but... only Stevinus A is rayed! (C.Wood).
- Central peak height
- Sekiguchi, 1972: 2.4 km measured from the west. A small mound to the SW of the central peak measures 1.2 km - fatastronomer
- TSI = 30, CPI = 25, FI = 20; MI =75 Smith and Hartnell, 1973
- Simon Stevin (1548/49 – 1620) was a Flemish mathematician and engineer. He was active in a great many areas of science and engineering, both theoretical and practical. He also translated various mathematical terms into Dutch, making it the only European language in which the word for mathematics ('wiskunde') was not derived from Greek (via Latin).
- The pair of high-albedo raycraters Stevinus A and Furnerius A are sometimes called the Headlights, see page 20 in the 21st Century Atlas of the Moon by Charles Wood and Maurice Collins.
