BRIEF DESCRIPTION
17.3N 165.6W
McMath is an 86 km impact crater on the lunar Far Side and the most prominent crater in Ridge Section 110. It lies SSW of the Jackson crater (Ridge Section 99), and material from the ray system centered on Jackson lies across most of McMath. Farther to the south lies the crater pair of Zhukovskiy and Lebedinsky. Zhukovskiy is the crater at the bottom right of the section with the craterlet inside, and Lebedinsky is to its right. McMath is a worn, torn up, and eroded crater formation with several small craters along the rim edge. The rim is the most heavily worn at the northern end, but is more intact to the east and west. The interior floor is relatively level, and is marked by only a few tiny craterlets.  (Credit: Some of the information used in the section feature descriptions was obtained from wikipedia.org. Section 110 and this directory was created by Fran Ridge and Ned Haskin of The Lunascan Project).
