Von Békésy (crater)

lunar crater data
diameter=96 km
eponym=Georg von Békésy

Von Békésy is a worn lunar crater on the far side of the Moon. It is located in the northern latitudes, behind the northeastern limb of the Moon as seen from the Earth. This is a relatively isolated crater formation, the closest named crater being Volterra crater, just over a crater diameter to the north-northeast. To the southwest lies Millikan crater.

This crater has been heavily eroded by subsequent impacts, and several portions of the rim are overlaid by smaller craters. The largest of these is laid across the southeastern rim. There are multiple smaller craters along the northeastern and the western rims. The interior floor is relatively featureless, with only a few tiny craterlets to mark the surface.

By convention these features are identified on lunar maps by placing the letter on the side of the crater mid-point that is closest to Von Békésy crater.
