  • A possible concentric crater is noticeable on the floor of Street M (west-southwest of Street itself, and south-southwest of Tycho). It was captured on the lower part of Lunar Orbiter 4's photograph LOIV-124-H2. Only the western part of this possible CC shows a "double rim", which makes it an interesting target for dedicated observers of this region on the moon.

Description: Elger

(IAU Directions) STREET.--A walled-plain between Tycho and Maginus, about 28 miles in diameter, with a border of moderate height, broken by depressions on the N. There are some small craters and ridges within; but the surrounding region, with its almost endless variety of abnormally shaped formations, is far more worthy of the observer's attention.
