BRIEF DESCRIPTION
9.9_N_112.6_E
Lobachevskiy is an 84 km lunar impact crater that is located on the lunar Far Side, beyond the eastern limb. This crater lies to the southeast of the larger crater Fleming. Less than a crater diameter to the east-northeast lies Guyot. This is a well-formed crater with features that have not been significantly eroded since Lobachevskiy was first formed. The rim and inner wall are nearly free of significant overlapping impacts, although the satellite crater Lobachevskiy M is attached to the southern outer rim. The inner walls display terrace features, along with some slumping along the upper edge. Near the midpoint of the interior floor is a pair of central peaks, with one to the southeast and the other to the northwest of the middle. To the east of these peaks is a relatively bright, high-albedo patch that is most likely the result of a recent small impact.  (Credit: Some of the information used in the section feature descriptions was obtained from wikipedia.org. Section 104 and this directory was created by Fran Ridge and Ned Haskin of The Lunascan Project).
