left: Clementine Tereshkova is the large crater in the center. 24-km Tereshkova U is partially visible along the upper left margin. The younger 15-km diameter crater below Tereshkova is not named. The dark feature in the lower right corner is part of the floor of Mare Moscoviense.
- Named for Valentina Vladimirovna Tereshkova (1937-Live), a Soviet cosmonaut and the first woman to fly in space. This is one of the few lunar features that was named for a living person.
- This name is one of twelve honoring living U.S. and Soviet astronauts and cosmonauts approved by the IAU in 1970 and published in Menzel, 1971.
- Danny Caes calls the system of wrinkle ridges on the western part of Mare Moscoviense (southwest of nearby Tereshkova) Dorsa Tereshkova.
