Eponym Christa McAuliffe

McAuliffe is a small lunar impact crater that is located on the Moon's far side. It lies within the inner ring of the double-ringed walled plain Apollo, about one crater diameter to the northeast of the crater Resnik. To the southeast of McAuliffe lies the crater pair of Jarvis and McNair.

McAuliffe is a bowl-shaped feature with a roughly circular rim. The rim edge has some wear, but is not overlain by other impacts of significance. The interior floor is roughly circular and featureless.
