BRIEF DESCRIPTION
42.3_N_145.0_W
Fowler is a large lunar crater that lies in the northern hemisphere on the lunar Far Side. It lies to the south-southwest of the crater Esnault-Pelterie and north of Gadomski (out of frame). Overlying the eastern rim and intruding into the interior is Von Zeipei (Ridge Section 091).  West of Fowler, and near the section edge, are two craters: Stoletov and Kulik. The outer rim of Fowler has become worn and rounded by impact erosion until it has become little more than an irregular slope down to the interior depression. A number of small craters lie along the rim and the inner wall. An impact along the northeast rim, just north of Von Zeipel, has a relatively high albedo and is surrounded by a skirt of bright material. This is indicative of a relatively recent impact that has not had time to darken due to space weathering. The eastern part of the interior floor is partly overlaid by the outer rampart and ejecta from Von Zeipel. The southern floor is marked by an arc of small impacts. The northern floor is more level and is marked only by a few small craterlets. (Credit: Some of the information used in the section feature descriptions was obtained from wikipedia.org. Section 90 and this directory was created by Fran Ridge and Ned Haskin of The Lunascan Project).
