BRIEF DESCRIPTION
26.4N 153.1W
Ridge Section 100 doesn't contain many prominent named features and was titled after the crater Ingalls.  One larger feature, a remnant with its main body in Section  99 and visible here on the eastern edge, is the crater Mineur straddling Sections 099 & 100.  Ingalls is an old 37 km lunar crater that lies on the lunar Far Side. It is located to the north-northwest of the walled plain Mach (Section 112) labelled in the SE corner in the cropped USGS color chart above.  Ingalls has been heavily damaged by subsequent impacts, leaving little more than an irregular depression in the surface. The outer rim is rounded and pock-marked by small impacts. The interior floor is a nearly featureless surface with a few tiny craterlets. Faint traces of ray material from the crater Jackson (Ridge Section 099), some distance to the west-southwest, lie across the northern rim of Ingalls. The best view is from the LRO Wide Angle Camera (51) image above.  (Credit: Most of the information used in the section feature descriptions was obtained from wikipedia.org. Section 100 and this directory was created by Fran Ridge and Ned Haskin of The Lunascan Project).
